A sure bet
15 July 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It shows the popularity of greyhound racing in general and Mick the Miller in particular that Gaumont British were prepared to make him top of the bill in this film.The story is fairly slight and clichéd and neither Sonnie Hale or Gwyneth Lloyd are really up to much.Flanagan and Allen feature very strongly in what could be said to be their alternate profession as bookmakers.also many location shots are taken at the White City Stadium which used to be up the road from the GB studios and the current BBC TV centre.There are some scenes of hare coursing at the beginning.Although distasteful now they do have to be seen in context.If you are a fan of the stars or greyhounds this is worth a look.Otherwise you might be less than enthralled.
