Oh Boy! is a 1938 British comedy film directed by Albert de Courville and starring Albert Burdon, Mary Lawson and Bernard Nedell. It was made at Elstree Studios by ABPC. The film's sets were designed by the art director John Mead.
Percy Flower, a young chemist, takes his girlfriend to watch his Beefeater father on parade at the Tower of London, but she is stolen away by an assertive, taller man. Percy is then given a secret formula by an eccentric inventor which makes him extremely confident, strong and energetic. However once Percy starts suffering the side effect, which reduces him back to childhood, his father urgently tries to find the Professor again to get the antidote. Eventually Percy is restored to his true self, managing both to win back his girlfriend and to foil a plot by some American gangsters to steal the Crown Jewels.
