Self titled Ras Prince Monolulu,, would adorn himself in fancy dress and proclaim "I gotta horse!", as he strode around the racecourses, selling his tips. He gained notoriety in 1920 by predicting100-6 outsider Spion Kop as the winner of the Derby winning £8,000 himself. (nearly £400,000 in 2018). He remained a popular character on the racing scene until his death the same year this movie was released. See more »

a British classic

i watched this film with my grandson who's 7 and he loved it, for a film made in 1965 it still has a lot of catchy tunes but the thing my grandson loved most was all the animals. billy fury is on top form what a great voice he had. it also has a very sad part but i will not spoil it for you i recommend you watch this film for your self. there are some nice songs from the bachelor's as well. and there are a lot of funny moments in the movie too. i think this film was called wondrous day in the USA so some of you may have to find it under that title. and there is a lot of great views of the English coast in this film and of course the great English horse race i won't tell you if billy's horse wins because you will have to watch it to find that out!!
