Trivia

Something of a movie comeback for nearly 19-year-old Margaret O'Brien after being away from the screen since 1952, this picture failed to garner a contemporary New York Times review. This fate was shared by her previous vehicle, Her First Romance (1951). See more »

For racing fans only
25 July 2005 | by (Mayberry, N.C.) – See all my reviews

I'm a horse racing fan, so I enjoyed seeing the color footage of the Churchill Downs and Keeneland racetracks from the 1950s. The footage they used for Glory's Kentucky Derby was from the 1955 Derby, when Swaps and Bill Shoemaker beat Nashua and Eddie Arcaro in one of the all-time great matchups.

Aside from the peak at history, the story is so hokey that it makes "Leave It To Beaver" seem like a gripping reality series. It's one of those really campy movies where you might want to invite some friends over, pump 'em full of beer, and have fun laughing at how bad the plot, dialog and acting are.

Call it "Plan Nine From Churchill Downs."
