What’s it all about?

Alfie’s not really a bad guy. It’s just that he has this overwhelming desire for the ladies. You might say that birds are irresistible to him, sort of second nature. There’s Ruby – ‘a lustbox in beautiful condition’; Clare – ‘you’re all lathered in sweat, Alfie’; Siddie – ‘my regular Thursday night bint, a bit leggy for my fancy, but you make a married woman laugh and you’re halfway home’; and Annie – but who’s counting? Certainly not Alfie. Three in one evening if necessary. And necessary is the right word . . .


About Bill Naughton

Bill Naughton was a British playwright and author best known for his plays "Spring and Port Wine" and "Alfie", the latter which he adapted for screen in the iconic 1966 film starring Michael Caine, and the 2004 remake starring with Jude Law. Born in Ireland in 1910, he grew up in Lancashire; his writing contains vivid evocations of the impoverished mining communities of the North of England, bound together by ties of family, kith and kin. Bill Naughton won the Screenwriters award 1967 and 1968 and the Prix Italia for Radio Play '1974' before settling in the Isle of Wight where he wrote several children's books based on his childhood memories. Naughton died in 1992.
