Alf Tubbe, Fred Phipps and Flash Harry are three down-and-out bookmakers who are trying to make an honest living on the Turf. After one particularly distressing day, when they owe money to all their clients, the three bookmakers are forced to disappear rather rapidly. Talking over their grim financial state, Alf comes up with a brilliant idea. Cardinal, the French wonder horse, is due to race next week and if they could somehow switch this animal, then they would stand to make a packet. At this very moment, a horse pokes its head over the hedge behind them-they are in business. They have found their switch, the living image of Cardinal. A few days before the race, the three friends set up headquarters in a pub and begin to make preparations. But a series of farcical disasters overtake them and they end up by mislaying their horse. Undeterred, Alf seeks the help of an unscrupulous jockey, and when this plan fails, Fred is ordered to ride Cardinal. Cardinal wins the race, but refuses to stop at the post. Pursued by an ambulance, a fire engine and the police, Fred leads a hectic chase across the countryside. But once it is over, the three unfortunate bookmakers, still owing money on Cardinal's victory, are forced to keep on running

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of English innocents are abroad in Paris for the first time. They land at Le Bourget full of champagne and good intentions. They have left austerity behind and look forward to a never-to-be-forgotten weekend. VIP Treasury Official Sir Norman Barker has come to Paris for a meeting of the International Economic Conference on Insolvency. Dicky "Bandsman' Bird", a member of the Band of the Royal Marines who are unveiling a statue to Lord Byron, hopes, during his stay, to catch a glimpse of something more lively. The romantically-minded young lady, Susan Robbins, wants to show off her home-made evening dress to Paris. Gwladys, an artist of little repute, is determined to fulfil her ambition to see the Mona Lisa. Andy McGregor, a window-dresser, intends to get ideas from displays in Paris shop windows and George Stilton, despises all foreigners and their way of life, but comes over annually for the racing at Longchamps to have his ideas of British superiority confirmed. A kaleidoscope of scenes follows taking you on a journey through Paris that you will not readily forget. The film is above all a study of characters, and it will stir delightful memories for those who know Paris-and whet the appetite of those who do not
