    This 1935 film farce was an early showcase for the comedic brilliance of Will Hay, marking the first of four collaborations with American director William Beaudine. Based on Arthur Wing Pinero’s 1887 stage play, Dandy Dick also features a minor role for Moore Marriott, later ‘Jeremiah Harbottle’ in the hugely successful run of Hay comedies made throughout the thirties. Dandy Dick is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

    The Very Reverend Richard Jedd has a problem: the church spire, now in a parlous state of repair, will cost nearly £1,000 to fix. When various money-raising schemes go awry, he is persuaded to waive his principles and bet what’s left of his savings on Dandy Dick, a 10-1 odds-on at the local races. A simple tonic to enhance the nag’s performance seems a good idea… but when the butler decides to intervene, the respectable clergyman finds himself in the middle of a doping scandal – and worse!
