Never Back Losers is a 1961 British film directed by Robert Tronson and starring Jack Hedley, Jacqueline Ellis and Patrick Magee. The film is based on The Green Ribbon (1929) by Edgar Wallace.[1] It was one of the Edgar Wallace Mysteries, British second-features, produced at Merton Park Studios in the 1960s.


Horse racing jockey Wally Sanders loses a race, crashes his car, and a claim is made on his insurance. Jim Matthews, a shrewd insurance investigator, follows up the company's suspicion of foul play and finds himself deep in a web of gambling and corruption surrounding the racetrack.
