Dandy Dick stars the magnificent Will Hay as supercilious village vicar Rev. Richard Jedd, presently anxious to raise enough money for a new church steeple. Though Jedd draws the line at gambling, he is coerced into risking every penny on a race horse called Dandy Dick. Romance enters the picture when the vicar's daughter Pamela (Nancy Burne) falls in love with wealthy Tony Mardon (Esmond Knight), the horse's part-owner. Based on a play by Arthur Wing Pinero, Dandy Dick incorporates a number of comic highlights that Pinero never dreamed of, including the timorous vicar's first airplane trip. The film was one of several Will Hay vehicles directed by Hollywood's William ("One-Take") Beaudine.
