Gentleman From Dixie
2 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Good film from Monogram Studios about an innocent ex-con, Thad Terrill (Jack La Rue), who goes to live with his handsome brother Lance (Robert Kellard), Lance's pretty wife, Margaret (Marian Marsh) and Lance's talented young pianist daughter (from his first marriage), Betty Jean (Mary Ruth). The villain of the story winds up being a friend of the family, Brawley (John Holland), who wants to buy Betty Jean's favorite horse to race it at the tracks with. Workers on the Terrill property are Jupe (Clarence Muse), Aunt Eppie (Lillian Randolph) and a group of others (Clarence Muse Singers). I liked everyone in the cast, especially good looking Kellard, lovely Marsh (whom I like in everything that I've seen her in), the enjoyable Muse (albeit, he was not a good singer) and Randolph. This film really has a feel of the South to it which is amazing for such a low-budget movie. Good cinematography and background vocals (from the Clarence Muse Singers), too. Nice way to pass an hour.
