COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Christy Huddleston recounts the tales of her youth in early 20th century Tennessee to her daughter. It is the year 1912, and Christy, a young missionary comes to Cutter Gap, a fiercely traditional, independent Appalachian community. Christy is especially met with suspicion when she supports a move t

Erie Canal, N.Y., 1850: Molly Larkins, cook on Jotham Klore's canal boat, has a love-hate relationship with her boss. She hires handsome new haul-horse driver Dan Harrow and the inevitable triangle develops (complicated by Dan's desire to farm and Molly's to boat) against a background of the canalmen's fight against the encroaching railroad.
Old Los Angeles (never known as "California Outpost" until 1953 when Republic re-issued it under that changed-title) finds Bill Stockton (Bill Elliott as William Elliott)leaving Missouri to join his brother Larry (Henry Brandon), and prospect for gold in California. Bill and his pal, Sam Bowie (Andy Devine), arrive in the picturesque town of old Los Angeles in 1848, but find that the outlaws rule...attacking mines and trains, burning ranches, looting stores and killing those who oppose them. Bill learns that Larry has been murdered for the gold claim he had staked for them. He sets out to avenge his brother's death but runs into difficulty when Estelita Del Rey (Estelita Rodriguez) misleads him to protect her lawless lover, Johnny Morrell (John Carroll.) Bill also suspects Luis Savarin (Joseph Schildkraut), gambling house proprietor, and Marie Marlowe (Catherine McLeod), an entertainer at Savarin's place.
George McAllister (John Carroll), the black sheep of a wealthy family who has squandered his share of the family inheritance, and lives in constant jealousy, hatred and resentment of his half-brother Barry (Robert Paige), who has been supporting him. George gets his girl friend, Carlotta Duval (Vera Ralston), a job as Barry's nurse with the plan of eventually marrying him. She does, but instead of going ahead with the original plan or getting rid of Barry, inheriting his money and marrying George, she finds that she is really in love with Barry.
Charles Alderson (Bill Elliott as William Elliott) and his wife settle in the Wyoming Territory, and form a lasting friendship with Thomas Jefferson "Windy" Gibson (George Hayes as George "Gabby" Hayes). Alderson's wife dies in childbirth, leaving him with an infant daughter, who he sends to Europe for an education. During the years in which she is abroad, Alderson becomes a wealthy cattle baron. The daughter, Karen (Vera Ralston), returns to Wyoming soon after it has been admitted to statehood. She finds that much of the land her father has considered as his own is now open to homesteaders, and that hostilities have broken out between the two factions. Alderson's foreman, Glenn Forrester (John Carroll), a former lawyer with whom Karen falls in love, warns Alderson against using violence in dealing with the homesteaders. Duke Lassister (Albert Dekker), a smooth operator dealing in cattle rustling, sets himself up as a spokesman for the homesteaders and uses their fight with Alderson to further his own interests. When Lassister murders Windy, Alderson hires a gang of outlaws to war on the homesteaders.
A couple of Confederate soldiers, returning home from the Civil War, find Texas transformed into an armed camp with a quasi-dictator gathering up land and power as fast as he can. The two former Rebels take on this despot each in his own way.
A Mexican beauty replaces her toreador brother in the bull ring so he can pursue his musical career.
A timid soldier sends his buddy's picture to a romantic pen pal.
One of the many films made at Republic with a year attached to the "Hit Parade" title, which came from the "Hit Parade" radio program sponsored by Lucky Strike cigarettes. On reissue all of the entries underwent a title change from "Hit Parade of 19??" to, usually, a title of a song contained in the film, as happened in the case of this film when it was reissued as "Change of Heart" in 1949, and not known under that title until 1949. Not reissuing the film under the original title of "Hit Parade of 1943" had a two-fold purpose; the audiences of that era were not much interested in seeing a film twice, and a changed title-even when the original title was clearly shown in (very) small print in the ads and on the posters---had a chance of being seen again by that segment of the ticket-buying public who didn't read the small print. The plot here is just a trifle---Susan Hayward ghost writes songs for composer John Carroll, whose charms evidently outweighed his song-writing ability---played in and around some great singing and dancing numbers by, for its time, a large number of black performers including Dorothy Dandridge, Count Basie, dancing by the great Jack Williams and the team of "Pops & Louie"(Albert Whitman and Louis Williams)and others, including Spanish dancer Chinita Marin, billed as Chinita. The song "Change of Heart", by Jule Styne and Harold Adamson, was Oscar-nominated, and also became the title of the film on 1949 reissue. Walter Scharf also was Oscar-nominated for Best Scoring of a Musical. Republic seldom got two nominations in any single year, much less two in the same film.
