Always On Sunday is a bio-pic on Le (Henri) Douanier Rousseau, a French naive painter.
Did You Know?
The part of Henri Rousseau is played by James Lloyd, not the small-part actor of that name, but a real-life artist who worked as a railwayman during the week and created elaborate paintings (in the "pointilliste" style) on Sundays. These had been acclaimed and exhibited and Ken Russell had made a documentary film about him for the "Monitor" series, so when he later moved on to making a drama-documentary about Rousseau, he thought of asking Lloyd, as a sort of British equivalent to the French artist, to play the lead.
