A Run For Your Money

Ealing comedy directed by Charles Frend.

Twm and Dai Jones (Meredith Edwards and Donald Houston), two brothers from a small mining village in Wales, win a coal-cutting competition and set off for London to claim their prize. There, the rural innocents are supposed to be escorted by newspaper reporter Mr Whimple (Alex Guinness), but they fail to make the rendezvous and instead get into various scrapes including a long pub crawl that ends up in a pawn shop and being taken for a ride by a pretty con woman, Jo (Moira Lister).
