Trivia

Three cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names, if any): Sam McDaniel (First Swipe), Eddy Waller (Bill) and Joe Bernard. A modern source also lists 'Walter Baldwin' (Ed), George Cleveland (Sam) and Matt McHugh (Dave), all of whom were not seen. The character of "Ed" was played by Francis Ford; Cleveland was offered a part, but turned it down to appear in another movie. See more »

Good Casting Buoys Farm Film
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those who like horses and horse racing, "Home in Indiana" offers a pleasant diversion.

Focusing on three in the cast, this was Jeanne Crain's first notable role, and what a "natural" she is. Completely at home before the camera, she shows early on her quintessential "girl-next-door" charm.

Paired with the equally "boy-next-door" Lon Mcallister, the two are perfect together. Lon came with a full list of juvenile film roles, and looked like the personification of a callow Indiana farm boy.

As for the amazing Walter Brennan, this was just another of his inexhaustible number of roles, always appearing much older than he actually was.

A further look at Brennen's folio, he made a whopping 63 films in three years (1933-35)! Can you imagine that? I can't.

The three together, along with Charlotte Greenwood as the proverbial "farm marm," offer a most convincing group of typical ranchers, struggling between corn crop mores and big city conventions--the latter represented by June Haver.

And those mares--absolutely beautiful!
