Classic British comedy starring George Formby. Lonely barber George Green (Formby) pines for his Regal Stores colleague Joan (Kay Walsh), but she is only interested in Hector (Guy Middleton), who works in the sports department. When a local newspaper sponsors a keep fit competition, Hector takes advantage of the opportunity to humiliate George in front of Joan. He then goes one step further, using George as the stooge in a rigged boxing contest. Unaware that his opponent has taken a dive, George becomes convinced that he is a champion, but how will he fare when Hector takes him on in the ring?
