Storyline

David Palmer, a young chemist, returns to his father's Indiana farm, to marry a local school teacher, Ruth Treadwell. David meets again his father's horse-trainer, Ben Lathrop, whose daughter, Cissy, has left high school to help her father. Palmer marries and becomes wealthy through an invention, and is able to indulge his socially-ambitious wife. His father dies and Palmer returns to Indiana, where his interest in harness-racing is rekindled, as is his interest in Cissy Lathrop. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Heartwarming Horse Race Story with fine performances
11 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

A good family film with a lovely performance from Gail Russell. It is a fine film for race fans. It will entertain the younger set also.
