The Orphan Boy, His Uncle, and the Horse that could Run
Doris Day was born in 1910 in Hempsted, New York. No, I am not talking about Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff, who was born in 1922 and is the pert blonde actress and singer that was famous in the 1950’s and 1960’s, using the stage name of Doris Day.
The first Doris Day actor only appeared in twelve motion pictures between 1939 and 1943, usually in an uncredited bit part. In this adventure, she is the leading lady, who is a young author writing a book about the lives of silent motion picture stars.
Robert ‘Buzz’ Henry, the star of this adventure, was ten years old when he made this movie. His first motion picture appearance was at age two. His final appearances before the camera were on the Mannix television detective series from 1967 till his death in 1971.
As an adult, he did stunt work for actors including Glenn Ford, James Coburn, and even Frank Sinatra. In 1971, he was the second-unit director and stunt coordinator for the John Wayne movie, “The Cowboys,” that would be released early in 1972. On September 30, after filming, at the age of 40, he was riding a motorcycle on Forest Lawn Drive, and was killed in an accident in front of the Forest Lawn Cemetery.
In this adventure, he is a young orphan who is living with his uncle. His uncle is a noted veterinarian who specializes in racing horses, so the two wander from racetrack to racetrack. His wealthy grandparents are searching for the two, with the intention of getting custody of the young boy. His grandparents believe that the horse racing environment is not good for a young boy, and are determined to find him and take him from his Uncle Jim. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
