Norman works in a jewellers workshop and fantasises (in the nicest way) about meeting the window dresser across the road from his workshop. He wants to buy her a diamond pendant but calculates it will take him over 100 years to save up for it. He is talked into betting a pound on a six horse accumulator at the Goodwood races with a slightly shady bookmaker. When he has won on the first five races, the bookie owes him over 16,000 pounds and everyone begins to worry. Everyone's future depends on a single race ... what can be done ? Written by

Well, shall I go and get the tea now then?
Tea? We don't have tea till half three. Half an hour to go yet.
I thought, you know, perhaps you might like it early today, cos it being so hot and all that, and on account of the heat making us all so parched and everything. Nothing like a nice hot cup of tea to unparch it is there? You imagine it: all running round your mouth inside and then it goes down to your throat and then it gives you all that lovely feeling inside your stomach. You imagine it ...

I grew up going to see Norman Wisdom films but can only remember seeing some for sure, it was so long ago, so have been able to catch up on Youtube with those I am not so sure about seeing. 'Just My Luck' is one I have just watched and do not remember so I can review as new. I still find his films very watchable and the early ones in particular had some hilarious moments. In this film he plays the role slightly less madcap than in previous films, although the character is basically the same, same too tight suit, like Chaplin, but his personality is perhaps not quite as dim as before. Being a little more intelligent he is able to put money on a accumulator on the horses and work out the winnings for example. The gags are less frantic than in earlier films and perhaps not as funny but I still found the film very watchable, with some good back up from established comedy stars in their early pre-star period like the great Joan Sims and Leslie Phillips. No songs either in this but Jill Dixon makes a pleasant love interest in place of Lana Morris from earlier pics. Margaret Rutherford as always is dotty as can be with her pet chimpanzee in the bath. Well worth a look if like me you can't resist Norman.
