I've Gotta Horse 1965 U

92 mins United Kingdom Director. Kenneth Hume

Great British rock and roller Billy Fury’s well-known affection for animals comes shining through in this cheerfully old-fashioned pop musical, which sees Billy suddenly become the owner of a racehorse and performing some punchy pop numbers accompanied by his mid-sixties backing band, The Gamblers.

Playing himself here, Billy gets sterling support from some top-class acting talent including sad-eyed Amanda Barrie (great as the girl who adores him) and a sniffy Jon Pertwee (excellent as a haughty gentlemen’s outfitter).
