| Social climbing horse trainer
Ty Hardin stars in Wall Of Noise a story about a thoroughbred racehorse trainer anxious to succeed and do a bit of social climbing. He's working the west coast circuit and most of the film is shot in Hollywood Park which is now history.

The social climbing consists of him falling for the wife of Ralph Meeker who has hired him to be trainer of a stable of racehorses he's starting. Meeker is a rather crude Harry Brock type married to former old money heiress Suzanne Pleshette and she's bored with his boorishness. She's got an itch and Hardin is around to scratch said itch.

Through a bit of Pleshette's scheming Hardin goes on the hook for the cost of a promising racehorse who's quite a bit rank. Meaning he has to win a big stakes race or else. There's also a good girl, not too good mind you, but Dorothy Provine has it big time for Hardin.

I always like racetrack stories like this or humorous ones like the Marx Brothers in A Day At The Races. This one is most serious with some fine characters. Acting honors go to Suzanne Pleshette as a woman trapped in a most loveless marriage who finds herself coming up way short on her machinations.

If you want a good cinematic day at the races, bet on Wall Of Noise.
