Goofs

The film begins with the birth of Lee Danfield. The bulk of the story occurs in 1940, after Lee returns from college, presumably around 21 years of age. This would place his birth in 1919. Both the doctor's and the veterinarian's cars that arrived simultaneously at the Danfield home at Lee's birth are models from the late 1920s, ten years in the future. See more »

Good horse story with comedy.
8 May 2005 | by jatodogSee all my reviews

Maryland is about a woman (Fay Bainter) who loves horses, raises horses, rides horses, races horses, and when she get's her husband involved and he's thrown to his death - hates horses. She orders the horse involved killed and all her other horses sold. But she can't keep her son from learning to ride, and racing when he's grown up, played by John Payne (Miracle on 34th Street), though she tries. Walter Brennan, winner of numerous Academy Awards, is the horse trainer who continues to encourage Payne even years after being fired, and Charles Ruggles (Papa's Delicate Condition) is Payne's uncle. Not just a good horse story with great technicolor; some hilarious comedy sequences and a nice plot twist make Maryland a winner for all audiences.
