    Hello, I'm trying to trace the name of a British film, made before the war, the plot involved a horse in the Grand National (it wasn't 'Come on George!') - I think it was in colour and made in 1939, and I'm sure i've read somewhere that it didn't do very well at the box office? Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Apologies, it came to me in an all-too-rare brainwave. The film is 'Happy Event' (1939) - the first ever British second feature to be made in colour. If anyone has a copy, that would be fantastic!
