Thank Evans is a 1938 British comedy film directed by Roy William Neill and starring Max Miller. The film is sequel to Educated Evans (1936), with Miller, Hal Walters and Albert Whelan all returning to reprise their roles as the hapless horse racing tipster Evans, his pal Nobby and the bungling Sergeant Challoner. The outline of the plot concerns Evans being once again down on his luck, and at the racecourse meeting a friendly and sympathetic Lord who helps him out. Later Evans manages to repay the gentleman's kindness by exposing his horse trainer as a duplicitous con-merchant.

Thank Evans is classed as "missing, believed lost", with only a one-minute fragment known to survive.[1]
