Thanks so much for sharing Iain.  I've been wanting to see this for many years now.  Definitely, not one of his best, but still quite impressive and inventive, especially compared to the crap being made today.

Portrait of a Goon online

Ken's early television film Spike Milligan, Portrait of a Goon is now online

https://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/spike-milligan-portrait-of-a-goon/znbkbdm

Spike Milligan was a famous British comedian, who wrote the cult radio series The Goon Show.  Ken's film consists of Milligan talking to camera, mainly reflective rather than funny, with some madcap interludes.  Not one of his best films, but still good to see it.

It was broadcast on 6 Dec 1959 and lasts just over 9 minutes.
