Did You Know?


The St. Petersburg Florida Evening Independent of August 10, 1944, reviewed the movie and had this to say about June Haver: "This June Haver is young and pretty with a nearly perfect figure which was displayed with a lavishness that makes one wonder how the Hays Office ever let it get by the censors. June wore fewer clothes, in two sequences, than I have seen anybody wear in a picture since the Hays Office took over. As she is decidedly worth looking at in that very scanty attire, the wonder is that the footage was not eliminated." See more »

Location for racing scenes in Home In Indiana
30 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The trivia section states that the racing scenes for this movie were shot in Fremont, Ohio. That may be true for the early scenes, but the final race in which Maudine IV races after going blind were shot in Marion, Ohio at the Marion County Fairgrounds. Although it has changed a lot in recent years, I spent many of my early years playing in the stands at the fairground and even rang the "call to the post" bell that is rung in the movie. My mother told us stories of seeing the stars of the movie at the fairgrounds when they were filming. One of the older guys I used to work with claimed he dated June Haver when they were in town. Even if I didn't believe him, I have no doubt that my mother was telling me the truth.

The list of filming locations does credit Marion, as well as several other locations where harness racing was one of the main local pastimes

I do enjoy the movie and try to catch it whenever it is on (generally on the FOX movie channel).
