  • Googie Withers


The fun is as fast and furious in this incident-packed George Formby romp as in any film he made. The lad from Wigan plays a would-be private eye involved with a gang of counterfeiters. The Formby vocal chords work overtime on such ditties as Fanlight Fanny and Hitting the Highspots Now, there's a wonderfully funny wrestling bout with real-life champ Tiger Tasker and the climax is a hectic pursuit through a brewery. Receipts foamed over at box-offices throughout Britain.
