Storyline

Trovatosi in grosse difficoltà economiche, un vecchio nobiluomo irlandese è costretto a vendere parte della propria scuderia ad un possidente Americano, che si porta via anche il suo miglior fantino. Durante una corsa il fantino si infortuna e, così, viene raggiunto in America dal vecchio padrone, che ha portato con sè anche la figlia ed una puledra. Per risollevare le sorti della scuderia, iscrivono la puledra ad una corsa importante (sarà la ragazza a montarla) e vincono il primo premio. Così possono tornare tutti e quattro in Irlanda.

John Ford In Complete Control Of His Craft.
18 July 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

THE SHAMROCK HANDICAP is the first film having an Irish motif that John Ford directed, a six reel delight set in Eire's County Kildare and in the United States, with a steeplechase background, mixing charged elements of comedy and sentimental drama, benefiting from a sterling cast including Leslie Fenton, Janet Gaynor, and Ford favourite J. Farrell MacDonald. After Sir Miles O'Hara (Louis Payne) is forced to sell most of his racing horses to American Orville Finch (Willard Louis) to pay debts, Finch persuades O'Hara's trainer and rider Neil Ross (Fenton) to leave with him for America to seek fortune, causing a sad separation between Neil and Sheila (Gaynor), daughter of Miles, who wishes to wed the young horseman. Fenton becomes permanently lame from a fall during a race in the U.S. but does not write of his injury to Sheila, and when an O'Shea entourage crosses the Atlantic to visit Neil, serious complications arise, with director Ford not relying solely upon sympathy for young Ross to propel his story to its very pleasing conclusion. Ford's distinctive stylistic methods garnish the film, at the same time providing a pastoral atmosphere synchronous with his perceptive visual character keynotes, brisk pacing, and always fresh, because unexpected, humorous invention, his protagonists defined by their actions and costumes, as in classic and medieval comedy. MacDonald plays Con O'Shea, Milo's handyman and friend, with always dependable Clair McDowell as Milo's wife, each player contributing a valuable turn in this well-edited affair, based upon an original story by Peter B. Kyne, popular American writer during the beginning years of the twentieth century. An upgraded print is in the collection of New York City's Museum of Modern Art, without tinting and 66 minutes, the best one to see, and it includes composer Philip Carli's epigrammatic piano solo score that offers a wealth of tuneful conceits.
