Storyline

George Shuttleworth is convinced that he has the talent to win the Isle of Man TT races, despite what his neighbours back home in Wigan may think. During the trials, the brakes go on George's bike, 'The Shuttleworth Snap', which he made himself. As a result, he breaks the TT lap record, becoming an instant motor-cycling star. As the big race approaches, George soon realises that other jealous riders will stop at nothing to make sure he does not take part in the race. An early George Formby film and probably his best.

Turned Out Nice Again
26 August 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was the first of the films that George made for ATP,later to become known as Ealing Studios.It is here that the template is laid for all the other films to follow.The gawky girl shy lad,triumphing over other more likely lads to win the girl and in this case the TT race.In this film he is directed by the Italian born,Monty Banks,who will marry Gracie Fields and supported by the experienced actress Florence Desmond.It is difficult to realise that George and Gracie managed to keep Ealing Studios afloat,whilst the head of production,indulged in "prestige pictures" which nearly drove the studios into liquidation and resulted in his being sacked,which led to the appointment of Michael Balcon and greater things.If you are interested in Britain in the 30s,or are a Formby fan then this is for you,otherwise forget it.Given the fact that his wife,Beryl was on the set,it is understandable that he is never kissed on the mouth by his leading lady!
