Jumping For Joy

1956 British comedy film about a new greyhound owner. Stars Frankie Howerd, Stanley Holloway, A.E. Matthews, Tony Wright, Alfie Bass and others.


Jumping For Joy was an attempt by Rank to recreate the success it had made in forging a screen career for Norman Wisdom. Unfortunately it was only a middling box office success and the company did not exercise its option to produce further films starring Howerd.
