Tony Hancock gives up his day job to become an artist. He's a lot of enthusiasm, but little talent, and critics dislike his work. Nevertheless, he impresses a talented artist.
The film was novelised in 1961 by Alan Holmes for Mayfair Books.
Ladies and gentlemen, I shall now bid you all good day. I'm off! I know what I was cut out to do and I should have done it long ago. YOU'RE ALL RAVING MAD! None of you know what you're looking at. You wait 'til I'm dead you'll see I was right!
