Not one of Lupino's better films, 4 January 2014
Author: malcolmgsw from london

Stanley Lupino,father of Ida,made a number of films in the 1930s,mostly based on his stage plays.The best seem to have been made for ABPC including Over She Goes,Happy,and Hold My Hand.This was clearly one of his less successful films.Two impecunious brother have a horse which they want to run in the derby.The main creditor threatens to foreclose shortly before the derby is run.A rich aunt agrees that she will give them £4000 to clear off their debts on the basis that they are married.this they misleadingly claim in order to get the money.However the money is taken from them by many small creditors before they can reach the main creditor.he forecloses and they have lost their horse.Lupino bets on an outsider.It was not the tip he was given but it wins and so they are back in the clear.The copy I viewed only runs 46 minutes.this is because it has been made from a 9.5 mm sound copy that was made for the Pathescope home movie market in the 1930s.If it had not been it is likely that like so many other British lion films of that era it would be lost.So good that the film exists,just a shame it does not match up to his better work.
