The corn is golden too., 9 December 2015
Author: mark.waltz from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The 14 year old Jane Withers looked like a young lady even in her early teens, appearing taller than she probably was and was certainly adapting to changes more than Shirley Temple who continued the same acting styles as she reached her teens. In this rural comedy drama christened as one of many "Styx pic's", Jane is a vivacious country lass whose first love seems to be the horses she looks over. Worried about the titled horse, Withers buys him from its owner, Buddy Rogers, and strives to get her grandfather George Irving to ride him in a buggy race. But a promise that Irving made his late wife threatens to previous Golden Hoofs from riding in the race.

A sweet subplot has Withers' young black friend being injured the day of the race and is one of those rare moments where a black character had a moment like that. Real life siblings of recent Oscar winner Hattie McDaniel (Sam and Etta) appear as his kinfolk. Withers gets one song to sing and a surprise twist makes for a touching finale. Withers is less "Little Miss Fix-It" this time around, yet her sunshine personality brings about joy foe everyone surrounding her.
