Adapting a novel by Edgar Wallace, one of the twentieth century's most successful and prolific thriller writers, Flying 55 sets an exciting tale of double-crossing and blackmail amid the glamour of the horse-racing world. Featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, Flying 55 is showcased in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Still incognito, he takes on the job of stable lad for Stella but little does she realise that he could be the man to finally put an end to her money worries forever...
