A Saab Story

Radio Times
Review by:
Jack Seale

Diminutive, hang-dog comic Billy Braver was a hit on US talk shows in the 1970s. Then, mysteriously, he gave it all up and spent 25 years as a Saab salesman – until news came that Saab might go under. At under 20 minutes long, this documentary about Billy’s tentative attempt at a comeback is a charming, drive-by snapshot of a man with funny bones and a dream that never died.
