Storyline

Old time rodeo performer Raymond Hatton and his grandson, (Buzz Henry as Robert Dee 'Buzzy" Henry) arrive in a small town with an injured horse, and local minister Russell Hayden tends the horse's injured leg. Jean Parker, a wealthy but selfish young widow, lives in the town. The church is in debt but the minister's financial problems are eventually solved by the horse winning a surrey race, and the widow whose attitude has been softned by Hatton, Henry and Hayden. This was the first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in as an adult, and was brought about when the just-discharged-from-the-Navy Carey ran into producer William Berke on an Hollywood street corner. Berke, who had produced six sound westerns in the mid-30's starring the elder Carey, offered Carey Jr. a bit in this film. The first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in was in 1921, as an infant in one of his father's silent westerns. Even with a 25-year-gap between his "first" and second film, Carey's 80 years of work in films may be ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pastor Takes in Boarders
16 October 2011 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Rolling Home was produced by Robert Lippert who was soon to found his own studio to produce B films of varying quality. This film is varying quality throughout although it is sincerely made and rather cheaply done.

Russell Hayden appears in one of his few non-western roles as an earnest pastor of a church which as churches always do, has money problems. He's got one easy way of making money if he marries wealthy widow Jean Parker, but Hayden has eyes for her younger sister Pamela Blake.

Into everyone's life comes Raymond Hatton, a veteran rodeo performer who's had his best years way behind him and his young grandson Robert Henry. They have a trailer and an injured horse and no place to stay. Being the good man he is, Hayden takes them in and that raises a few eyebrows though God only knows why.

Jean Parker is the villain of the piece until almost the very end of the film. But she's more like a Cruela DeVille type villainess than anything else. What a woman scorned won't do.

An important plot element is young Henry, Jo Ann Marlowe who is Parker's daughter and best remembered on screen for being Joan Crawford's younger daughter in Mildred Pierce, and Jimmy Conlin all train the horse after he's recovered to enter a trotting race to win a purse and solve all their problems. Even the most naive racing fan knows that pacing and trotting horse have to be taught that gate almost from birth and a horse used to being a roping horse in a rodeo has too much to unlearn to be any good. But why let that little fact get in the way of a good story?

Rolling Home is a sincere enough film and the players have nothing to be ashamed of. But it was a bit ridiculous as well.
