|Plot||Old time rodeo performer Raymond Hatton and his grandson, (Buzz Henry as Robert Dee 'Buzzy" Henry) arrive in a small town with an injured horse, and local minister Russell Hayden tends the horse's injured leg. Jean Parker, a wealthy but selfish young widow, lives in the town. The church is in debt but the minister's financial problems are eventually solved by the horse winning a surrey race, and the widow whose attitude has been softned by Hatton, Henry and Hayden. This was the first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in as an adult, and was brought about when the just-discharged-from-the-Navy Carey ran into producer William Berke on an Hollywood street corner. Berke, who had produced six sound westerns in the mid-30's starring the elder Carey, offered Carey Jr. a bit in this film. The first film Harry Carey Jr appeared in was in 1921, as an infant in one of his father's silent westerns. Even with a 25-year-gap between his "first" and second film, Carey's 80 years of work in films may be the longevity record.... see Rolling Home on IMDb|

|Briar, a thoroughbred with promise, collapses with a leg injury during a race. His owner and rider, an aging rodeo man named Pop Miller, tearfully begs the track official not to shoot the horse. Intent on nursing the steed back to health, Pop and grandson Gary hitch up the horse trailer and hit the road in search of a veterinarian. Fortune soon brings them to a small town, where a sympathetic minister, Reverend David Owens, offers them food, shelter and a garage to use as a stable. The pastor's struggling church is spirit rich but cash poor, and his generosity to those rodeo folk doesn't sit well with rich, young widow Crawford. Normally that wouldn't cause any concern for the Reverend, but it complicates his efforts to woo a large charitable contribution from her for his congregation. Against his better judgment, Owens begins to see the recuperating racehorse as the key to his church's survival.|
