Pride of Maryland Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P13617~Stanley Clements~stanleyclements]] stars in Republic's Pride of Maryland as an ambitious jockey named Frankie (an inside joke: most movie jockeys were played by [[Performer~P17067~Frankie Darro~frankiedarro]] -- who plays a supporting role in this film!). After discovering a sure-fire method of winning all his races, Frankie is barred from competition when he bets on himself. This turn of events leaves him utterly broke, since he's been sending his money to his girlfriend Christine ([[Performer~P68268~Peggy Stewart~peggystewart]]) and her horse-breeding father. Christine returns the favor by helping Frankie regain his professional standing. The film ends predictably with the Big Race that solves all the dilemmas posed by screenwriter [[Performer~P83716~John K. Butler~johnkbutler]]. A better-than-average Monogram release, Pride of Maryland is marred only by its overreliance on stock footage (much of which would resurface in the [[Performer~P120738~Bowery Boys~boweryboys]]' [[Feature~V88094~Crazy Over Horses~crazyoverhorses]]). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
