Amazed and delighted to see this film on Sky today!
19 March 2017 | by magsfrancisSee all my reviews

My Dad - Alfred Hall - always told us he was involved with making sheepdog films, but we had no idea that any of them were available to view. Anyway, there he was on-screen, he even had some action! I wish he was still here to see it too. A very old fashioned film with a bit of a dodgy story line, but take it with a pinch of salt and it was very funny in parts. I enjoyed it.
