I've Gotta Horse
Great British rock and roller Billy Fury buys himself a racehorse in this colourful musical for all the family.
Musical 1965 92 mins
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).
