War reserve policeman with ambition to join the motor
cycle squad, foils enemy agents who plan to blow up the propeller
of a new warship, and launches the ship himself, just in time to save
it. Features a chase in a midget car, and a stomach churning sequence
on a Wall of Death.
A police war reservist catches saboteurs. One of the
last good Formby comedies, with everything percolating as it should.
