H. Bruce Humberstone,
A lad with a penchant for trouble is sent to live with his aunt and uncle in Indiana. Though he's not happy about the arrangement at first, his love of horses and his affection for a young filly that he plans to race make life bearable. He also finds romance with tomboyish Char who shares his love for horses. Written by

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 »
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!
