D'Ye Ken John Peel? (released in America as Captain Moonlight) is a 1935 British adventure film directed by Henry Edwards and starring John Garrick, Winifred Shotter and Stanley Holloway. It was made at Julius Hagen's Twickenham Studios.It takes its name from the traditional hunting song of the same name. The film's sets were designed by the art director James A. Carter.
Major John Peel returns to England from serving in the Napoleonic Wars to discover that his friend Lucy Merrall is now engaged to be married to local villain Sir Charles Hawksley.
Film critic David Parkinson, writing in The Radio Times , gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and called the film a "a crusty old melodrama in the Tod Slaughter tradition", with Leslie Perrins "chewing the scenery with a delicious lack of restraint". He summarised: "This is anything but a lost classic, but there is the chance to see Stanley Holloway as Sam Small, the character he adopted for so many of his famous monologues."
