This film was recently shown as part of a double bill at the NFT in the season celebrating British B Movies.Although the page title gives the impression that this was shown on TV,in fact these films were the second features on double bills on the ABC circuit in the 1960s.Wallace was very keen on horses and he decided to use this in one of his stories.The love of the turf got him into financial difficulties and he would dash off a story such as this in a few hours to get himself out of trouble.The story of this film is not of any great interest but there is a star turn from Patrick Magee as a gangster.He just exudes menace.However he drives around London in an American car with lots of big wings.Also in the car chase the cars seem to be more intent on obeying the Highway Code by stopping at junctions.It also has to be said that the ending is a bit risible.However all in all an entertaining way of passing an hour.
