Trouble Brewing

One of the successful run of pre-war Ealing comedies that secured George Formby's enduring popularity with the British public, Trouble Brewing sees everyone's favourite gawp turn amateur detective when he's swindled out of his racing winnings! Co-starring Googie Withers, Gus McNaughton, Martita Hunt and Ronald Shiner, it is presented here as a high definition remaster from original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Feeble George, a newspaper compositor with delusions of being a detective, wins big at the races. But when he changes his three tenners down to more manageable fivers he's slipped counterfeit notes. Suitably annoyed, George puts his sleuthing skills to the test and goes undercover!
