Spare A Copper

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.
Brendan Ryan

A police war reservist catches saboteurs. One of the last good Formby comedies, with everything percolating as it should.
Leslie Halliwell
