Weedy barber joins Keep Fit campaign to impress pretty
manicurist. He triumphs over muscular, preening rival in the boxing
ring. The League of Health and Beauty was currently popular when the
film was made.
In the gym, in the ring, and in the front
row of the cinema this was another big success for George. Three top
hit songs which are still everybody's favourites in the George Formby
George proves that even when you have had sand kicked in your face,
you can still jump up and beat the bully. The school kids must have
loved this one, especially when George knocks out nasty Guy Middleton
in the final reel and is carried off with the lovely Kay Walsh to
resounding cheers from the packed crowd at the boxing stadium.
George maintains the bright start he has made with ATP.
