The Galloping Major is a 1951 British comedy sports film starring Basil Radford, Jimmy Hanley and Janette Scott. It also featured Sid James, Charles Hawtrey and Joyce Grenfell in supporting roles. It was directed by Henry Cornelius. The title is taken from the song "The Galloping Major", and the plot was centred around gambling at the horseracing track. A syndicate in a London suburb club together to buy a race horse to run in the Grand National.



  • "Lambs Green" in the film is actually Belsize Village, London NW3. The "cafe" is now a Greengrocers (2012), but the whole area is easily recognisable.
  • The race track was filmed at Alexandra Palace, which can be seen briefly in the background.
