Forties weepy not without interest.
13 January 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Even at the tail end of their careers in regular employment, Ameche and Borzage don't let Republic's formula, tear jerker, horse picture totally defeat them. The triple punch still connects - in the card game with Ridgely, speaking the sentimental song to the sick child and the big race.

The production values are very 'forties with the use of studio setting and back projection nearly as much a distraction as the fashions.

It's nice to see Roscoe Karns get a substantial part.
