This hilarious 1950’s Rank comedy features Frankie Howerd and Stanley Holloway taking the lead in this canine comedy caper!!
When Willie Joy (Frankie Howerd) is fired from his job at White City Dog Track he takes pity on injured greyhound Lindy Lou, who seems to have one paw in the grave. Willie nurses the sickly pooch back to health with the help of con-man Captain Jack Montague (Stanley Holloway) and they plan to enter their hapless dog in the prestigious Golden Bowl race. They must, however, escape the clutches of a race fixing gang and dodgy bookie Bert Benton (Lionel Jeffries) to give Lindy Lou a chance to bring home the bacon and win the Golden Bowl!
