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!
