Storyline

When the box-office manager takes off with all the money belonging to a traveling theatre-troupe, the show's promoters and leading performers, Bill Potter and Jim Truman, have to sell off of the show's assets to a theatre in Newcastle in order to pay the actors. They have enough money left over to open up a bookie's stall in London taking bets on greyhound-racing. The local bookies send a stooge around to give them some false inside-information and they can't cover the losses they garner using the incorrect-odds, and have to sell everything they own. All that is left is a greyhound puppy which Bill determines he will train for racing and make a fortune. And then bad things really begin happening to Bill including having to escape prison, on a trumped-up charge, as part of the rubbish carried off in the garbage lorry.

Gone to the dogs

I was hoping that this would be better than some of his other films.It starts off promisingly with him and Hal Gordon in a show but then goes downhill rapidly.The film is centred around greyhound racing and was partly shot at Wembley Stadium.The acting is indifferent,the script unfunny and there is far too much of Leslie Fuller.He keeps on saying "watch it" which I assume was a stage catchphrase.If I were you,don't watch it.
