He Snoops To Conquer DVD
George Formby is joined by Robertson Hare in this fabulous 1940s British musical comedy, available for the very first time on DVD. The war is over and it's time to build a better Britain - but not if the crooks on Tangletown Town Council have their way! Knocking down Tangleton's slums will ruin their business interests. When Council tea boy George Gribble (George Formby) is employed to go door-to-door filling in a council survey, he uncovers just how poor and unhappy the townspeople are - and the council have to bury the results. He also gets to meet the eccentric and reclusive inventor Sir Timothy Stawbridge (Robertson Hare) - a meeting that results in wanton destruction with a mechanised road sweeper, a spot of house breaking and a furious police chase! When news gets out that the survey has been hushed up, the townspeople want George's blood - and the only way he can set things right is to team up with Sir Timothy's beautiful daughter and take on all the bigwigs from the council! In between setting the world to rights and championing the little people, George has time to perform three belting musical numbers in true Formby style - Got To Get Your Photo In The Press, Hill Billy Willie and Unconditional Surrender.
