Synopsis

1940s comedy starring George Formby as a junior council employee who gets caught up in a town planning dispute. There should be unity and happiness in the small town of Tangleton - the war has just been won and plans can be made to rebuild the town for a better future. However, when the council tea boy, George Gribble (Formby), is sent to conduct a survey on how the townspeople feel about the council's proposed post-war 'improvements' he is surprised to discover just how poor and unhappy the ordinary people of Tangleton are. When the bigwigs on the council decide to bury the survey and proceed with the plans anyway, George teams up with an eccentric inventor, Sir Timothy Strawbridge (Robertson Hare), and his charming daughter, Jane (Elizabeth Allan), to give a voice to the town's poor and downtrodden.
