| boy's town set at a race track
It's Boys Town, but at a race track setting. Stars Robert Readick as Benny, the kid-wonder horse jockey. He wins a couple of controversial races, so he gets sent to a local track for more professional training. Co-stars Frank Craven as the trainer "Garnet". Turns out Readick only did two films - this one and "Canterville Ghost" the next year... guess he didn't like Hollywood. Benny keeps on getting in trouble while giving a younger jockey (Skip) some tips. Skip is played by Douglas Croft, who had also played the very first "Robin" in the 1943 film "Batman". Harrigan's Kid is entertaining, and teaches us some life lessons, but is a little dry by today's standards. Would love to know where it was filmed.. the mountains in the background look like Santa Anita, or Palm Springs. Turner Classic must not show this very often; as of May 1 2009, doesn't even have five votes yet. Directed by Charles Reisner, who had worked with Charlie Chaplin on a boatload of silent films.
