Wings of the Morning

Directed by Harold Schuster
Starring Henry Fonda, Annabella, Stewart Rome, John McCormack, Leslie Banks
Run time 89 min

Set amidst the exciting world of horse racing and shot in beautiful Technicolor, a young noblewoman must marry a Duke to fulfill the prophecy of her Romany ancestors. But she becomes enamored with a horse trainer (Henry Fonda) and joins forces with him to enter the Epsom Downs Derby with a horse named Wings.

The green, blue and grey of the Killarney landscapes, and the bright rainbow colours of Epsom on Derby Day, must have had an overwhelming effect on contemporary audiences.
