Clichéd Horseracing drama
9 June 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Even when this film was made for RKO as a quota film in 1939 the elements of the story were very familiar.De Marney plays an amateur jockey who is being blackmailed on a bounced cheque by one of his father's sworn enemies.De Marney helps out Marius Goring by paying his gambling debt of £150,a large amount in those days.he goes back to his father for more financial help but father kicks him out.De Marney lands a job as a lad in the stables of Nancy Byrne.He tames a wild horse,Flying 55 and enters him in a race.Everything depends on his winning,naturally.Father's rival wants him to lose the race and he will tear up the cheque.De Marney comes second but there is an objection and he wins and gets to marry Byrne and is reconciled with dad.So really film making by numbers.Every cliché covered.Not an original line or plot device to be found.
