The IMDB lists a few examples: FATHER CAME TOO (1963), a British film that apparently includes a number of historical British characters and the 1971 series farce CARRY ON HENRY.  The closest thing to a serious film seems to be a 1923 silent film titled GUY FAWKES.  There is also, strangely enough, a 1999 comic/horror film titled TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN, with Tom Everett Scott as a character named Guy Fawkes (and a woman character named "Chris Marlowe").   I suspect ex-English majors with too much time on their hands.

        Does anyone know if there has ever been a film about the 17th century
        "Gunpowder Plot" against Britain's Parliament and inspired "Guy Fawkes Day."
        Thanks for any help anyone can give me!
