Poster tagline[edit]

"You've got to sing... swing.. and do your own thing... And no one does it better in merry young London than Herman's Hermits." [3]

Plot[edit]

Herman inherits a prize greyhound called Mrs. Brown and aims to race the dog and win the derby. Herman and his group, The Hermits play gigs to raise money for the race entry fees. The Hermits travel from Manchester to London for more concerts, and at the London dog race, Herman falls for Judy, who is also Mrs. Brown's daughter.

Critical reception[edit]

  • In DVD Talk, Bill Gibron wrote, "it's almost impossible to embrace this movie as well made and amusing. It is an entertaining antique, but that's about it."[4]
  • In The Spinning Image, Graeme Clark described the film as "something of an improvement on the Hermits' previous movie, Hold On!...The songs are better...what you're left with is an artefact that was not intended to last down the ages, but has anyway." [5]
