Jumping for Joy

Lame, optimistically titled Britcom with young Howerd as the dog-track gopher who's sacked on suspicion of involvement in a doping scandal, but gets his own back on his old bosses by nursing a sick greyhound back to peak condition and winning the big race. Holloway's the con artist in support.

A good clean fun film typical of the period, as a lover of british comedy greats, Frankie is up there with the best even at this early stage of his career.
