Norman Wisdom has to be one of the best British comedians of the 20th Century. For fifty years he has continued to entertain the British public with his films, TV appearances and one-man shows.
Between 1953 and 1966 Wisdom worked with the J. Arthur Rank Orginisation and there, starred in some of the best loved British comedies of all time, including Just My Luck.
The plot for the film is that Wisdom works in a jewellers workshop and fantasies about meeting the window dresser across the road. He wants to buy her a piece of jewellery, so decides to bet on the horses to win his fortune.
Wisdom fans won't be disapointed by this one. It has everything included in 1950s comedy: the poor shop-worker, the beautiful girl, the Goodwood races and the back seat of the cinema. Cameos by Leslie Phillips and Margaret Rutherford make it all the more enjoyable.
