Following a successful day at the races, Major Hill is able to pay off his debts. Being a horse-lover, living in the London suburbs of Lamb's Green, he decides to buy a certain racehouse. With the help of Hill's daughter, Susan, Bill, a bus-driver, Pam, his romantic conductress and Maggie, who runs a milk bar, the money is raised, helped by a large last-minute subscription from gouty Sir Robert Medleigh. But by mistake the wrong horse is bought, and not a very good horse at that. When he proves useless on the flat, the syndicate vote to train him themselves as a jumper on the local Common and under the new name "The Galloping Major." Undeterred by setbacks, they persevere, and following success in some minor races they decide to run him in the Grand National. Excitement mounts feverishly as the big day approaches, but only thirty-six hourse before the race the horse mysteriously disappears. All is confusion until it is discovered that he has strayed into a film studio and has been sent on location to Chester. The owners race north by the bus-load to find him and rush him to the course. But the engaged jockey has withdrawn and the considerably overweight Hill has to ride. The extra load is his salvation, for it keeps him so far behind the other runners that when one by one they all fall, he is able wearily to drag himself past the winning-post

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Directed by Robert Hamer (Kind Hearts and Coronets) It Always Rains On Sunday is considered to be one of the greatest and most overlooked achievements of British 1940's cinema. The film was featured in Time Out's 100 Best British Films list, as chosen by 150 film industry experts, including Sam Mendes and Wes Anderson. Googie Withers stars as Rose Sandigate, a Bethnal Green housewife whose Sunday is turned upside down by the re-appearance of an old flame who is now an escaped convict seeking protection from the police. A rare glimpse into life in London's East End post WWII, It Always Rains On Sunday was Googie Withers's last film for Ealing Studios and, due to her wonderful performance as a woman trapped in a claustrophobic domesticity, it remains one of her best
