POST HORN GALLOP

Synopsis: 

 

Chester Dreadnaught returns from his honeymoon to find his aristocratic in-laws have turned their stately home, Elrood Castle, into a tourist attraction.

 

With the scatty Lord and Lady Elrood opening the castle to the public all sorts of things go wrong with Boy Scouts camping in the grounds and the gawping visitors being given guided tours by the castle historian Miss Partridge.

 

Meanwhile Chester is once again menaced by his old enemies Capone and Wedgewood, whilst Lord Elrood lurks in the flowerbeds with his shotgun ready to defend himself from the butcher boy, the postman and any other suspicious characters!
