Tommy the Toreador is a 1959 British musical comedy film directed by John Paddy Carstairs and starring Tommy Steele, Janet Munro, Sid James, Bernard Cribbins, Noell Purcell and Kenneth Williams. A British ship docks in Spain and Tommy, a sailor from London tries his hand as a bullfighter. Along the way he finds time to sing "Tommy the Toreador" and "Little White Bull" (Lionel Bart, Michael Pratt, Jimmy Bennett).
In The Radio Times, Tom Vallance gave the film three out of five stars, and wrote, "perky pop star Tommy Steele, a former seaman himself, plays the part of a sailor in this lively and likeable musical comedy"; while Variety called the film "a brisk, disarming little comedy."
