Trivia

When Georgie Crain (Fella Edmonds) goes to Newmarket for the first time, he peeks inside the High Street shop of Boyce & Rogers, the famous saddle makers. The stuffed horse on the left inside is Robert the Devil who was trained at Palace House in Newmarket. He won the St Leger and came second in the Derby in 1880 winning GBP24,000 that season - a huge sum of money at the time. Robert the Devil is still in Newmarket, at the premises of Gibson Saddlers the firm that took over Boyce & Rogers in the early 1960s. See more »

couldn't stay the course
10 March 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

if you enjoy horse racing and all that goes with it.If like me you find it a complete bore don't waste your time with this film.The only good thing about it is the colour cinematography.The story is full of clichés and it is surprising to realise that the great T.E.B.Clarke was the scriptwriter.I have to say that after a relatively short period of time I pulled up lame as I was clearly unable to last the course and was unwilling to risk a stewards enquiry.All the usual characters were to be seen such as Robert Morely and Wilfred Hyde White.However by this time Ealing was starting to run out of steam and more importantly money.It only had 2 years left before it was sold to BBC for television productions.You might call that a lame finish.
