So bad it's good.
15 March 2008 | by (Kentucky, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so bad it was funny. The plot line is totally lame -- as in "what are we gonna do today? I don't know, let's win the Kentucky Derby." The acting, if you can call it that, was awful, the photography was lamentable going from too light to too dark, the writing was stiff and sophomoric, all in all, it was a good laugh! Johnny's family needs money, so of course, after being convicted of murder which he didn't do, he has to win the Kentucky Derby for "sis" and ma.

The scenes shot at "Churchill Downs" obviously were NOT Churchill, but then with a 1935 audience, I'd bet (no pun intended) few people would have even noticed. All in all, the only Kentucky connection was in effect an impersonated Churchill Downs, but then I'm just a nut for accuracy, so that's MY problem.

It's a typical B movie from 1935, but if you need a good laugh, try watching.
