Directed by Henry Levin
Runtime: 97 min.
Young Nick Conover is forced to leave Chicago after being put on probation for stealing a
car. From now on, he will have to live and work on the Kentucky farm of his uncle Jed Bruce
and his aunt Henrietta. In other words, there he is, forlorn, in the middle of nowhere. All the
more as his uncle, who does not seem to have overcome the death of his son Jed Jr., does
not welcome him with open arms. It goes without saying that Nick, who is not such a bad
boy after all, is very upset. But luckily, there is also kind-hearted aunt Henrietta, a wonderful
trotter who has gone wild and who is just asking to be tamed as well as two charming
young neighbors, Fran and Liz. All in all, happiness might well be a thing called Kentucky...!

- This is a sweet film, but I prefer Home in Indiana with Jeanne Crain. (Posted on 10/14/12)
