Movie Info

The inspired buffoonery of British music hall clowns Stanley Lupino and Laddie Cliff keeps this "quota quickie" on track. The stars play Percy and Peter Brace, two cheeky chappies who haven't a penny between them. Their sole asset is a jointly owned racehorse, but this may be lost to the Brace boys' creditors before the all-important English Derby at Epsom. Our heroes pretend that the nag has been kidnapped, hoping to extract "ransom" money from a wealthy aunt. But she won't hand over the dough until she's been assured that Percy and Peter have been married to women of culture and breeding (complicated, ain't it?) The tangled web of deception threatens to choke the boys, but all turns out well in the climactic Derby race. Sporting Love was based on a play by co-star Stanley Lupino (Ida's father, by the way). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
