Death scene is so bad i cant believe they made movies like this..
Talking one second and dead the next, come on....Were people this bad of actors back then?? I guess standards were very low back in the day..This movie could have been good. Horse racing was in its hey day back then and they still produce this garbage? I love horse racing so i forced myself to watch this on TCM and it is really unbelievable how terrible how the actors come off. Expectations must have been extremely low in the 40's.. I know times change but the whole thing and the ending were half azz at best. I hope this movie didn't make much money, or if it did i now know why senor citizens think the way they do about todays movies if this is what they are used to..
