Devil on Horseback is a 1954 British drama film directed by Cyril Frankel and starring Googie Withers, John McCallum and Jeremy Spenser.[1] Its plot involves a boy who pursues his ambition to be a jockey. The screenplay was by Scottish writer Neil Paterson. It was made at Beaconsfield Studios with sets designed by Michael Stringer.


Critical reception

Leonard Maltin called it an "inconsequential racing yarn" ;[2] the Radio Times said, "it's strong on atmosphere and story. Sadly, the film suffers from lack of pace, disappointing racing sequences and an overdose of sentimentality" ;[3] but TV Guide called it a "good racetrack drama, with excellent performances all around."[4]
