I’ve Gotta Horse (1966)

ivegottahorse2

British rock and roller Billy Fury jeopardises the success of his summer show when he misses rehearsals in order to spend more time with his animals, particularly when his racehorse runs in the Derby.

Fury deserved better than this dumb confection, which failed to do for him what similar threadbare flicks did for Cliff Richard.

Coronation Street fans might enjoy watching Amanda Barrie in her movie heyday, and connoisseurs of trivia will note that the director Kenneth Hume was married to Shirley Bassey at the time, while dedicated followers of fashion can admire the 1960s clothes.

If you care, the title was the catchphrase of colourful racetrack tipster Ras Prince Monolulu, a now-forgotten minor celebrity of the period.
