Have A Go
15 September 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film stars Wilfred Pickles who was famous on the radio for his programme "Have A Go".This film about greyhound racing is only of marginal interest.However of more interest are the many familiar faces who pepper the cast list.There is Petula Clarke,still a Rank starlet.Peter Butterworth in this early association with Peter Rogers before the days of the Carry Ons and Jon Pertwee before the days of Wurzel Gummidge.Many of the rest of the cast such as Megs Jenkins and Harold Goodwin are familiar from TV and small parts in films.The best thing that can be said about this film is don't expect too much and you wont be disappointed.
