I just recently got this movie and have watched it twice. I absolutely love it! Don't listen to those who gave this movie 1 star..... it's definetly a 5 star! Bing's performance is just awesome! He was always such a truthful actor, and in this movie you can really see his own personality come into the character. And I thought Coleen Gray's performance was very good also. I think that she portrayed her character perfectly. I really enjoyed the music also. And "Sunshine Cake" was not "sentimentality at its most obnoxious" as one reviewer said.......the characters were just being goofy and having fun, and I really enjoyed it (people shouldn't take things so seriously). This movie has become one of my favorites, and I highly recommend it. It's a light, fun, and humorous movie with some really charming scenes and songs.

I love the energy and enthusiasm of Capra's films, and I disagree with Maltin's description of the film as "unmemorable entertainment." I have seen it twice and hope to see it again. There is such a high level of quality throughout...not only in the techniques of film making, but in the incredible appropriateness of the acting...body language, facial expressions, interactions between characters, and so on. I suppose I am old fashioned, but I don't see this level of quality in many of today's films. Sure our technology is awesome, but what do we do with it...Make some pretty stupid, boring films in which people walk around like zombies, speaking lines they don't seem to understand, and don't utilize their faces or bodies to support the scenes. I find this film uplifting and exhilarating, and completely entertaining from beginning to end. Capra claims in his autobiography that he wanted to do this remake Broadway Bill because Warner Baxter, the original star, was nervous around horses, and did not really acheive what Capra wanted. I have not yet seen Broadway Bill, so I can't compare... but this remake contains original 1934 footage ingeniously integrated into the ca. 1951 scenes. An actor from 1951 engages in a telephone conversation with someone who was filmed in 1934! Great fun.

Bing Crosby is quite good in this movie, neither a straight-up crooner nor half a comedy act.
He plays a rather ordinary fellow who gets mixed up with an extraordinarily stuffy family by falling in love w/ one of the (temporarily) available daughters.
Horse sense prevents one huge mistake, but Bing almost misses out on the "Princess" who'd like to be his queen (Coleen Gray).
More than one totally silly musical scene, including "Bake a Sunshine Cake," and "The Horse Told Me."
Attempts at stabbing in the back (after all, there's a big horse race at stake) and a little good-natured conniving add depth to the story. The underdog (in this case a horse and his owner) come out on top, the girl gets her man, and even Bing's future father-in-law shows a glimmer of horse sense in the end (Joseph Cotton is perfect for the role!).

With his signature charm, spell-binding voice, and honest acting, Bing Crosby demonstrates why he was the pied piper of the entertainment industry for 30 years. Plus, it's an amazing horse film! :)

Bing Crosby with a great supporting cast and a great story line and a lesson to be learned: money means nothing if you aren't happy. I thought the remake was much better than the original film (Broadway Bill).
