Yes - there seems to be many plots and subplots in this story, which to me is what made it so delightful. Spanish gypsies, Canadian horse trainers, British dignitaries, even a famous musician - all set in Ireland! I was not aware of the movie until watching it on TCM recently. In a way, it's similar to the short story movie vignettes except this IS one story. Maybe women will appreciate it more than men - give it a try.
Something for everyone

Horse story, love story, great historical shots of europe right b4 the war.. Also great shots of the derby celebration complete with gypsies and pearlies and the british aristocrats all celebrating the race day.. Cameos of celebrities of the day and panoramic views of Ireland and it's lochs All entertaining in my view!!!
This film is much too much of a mishmash of stories for me. It's also preposterous and the acting is horrid. I do not understand the swoon by reviewers about John McCormack. No matter what he sang, it was always with a thick Irish accent and I simply detested that. The few recordings he left show this markedly in his singing of Italian operatic arias. Frankly, the only things I actually liked about this film was the magnificent horseflesh and the dog!
Less is best...
The voice of John McCormack makes this lightweight romance worth watching despite the presence of Henry Fonda. I found the technicolor distracting. I do appreciate subtle and delicate, but the overall lavender tint was not appealing IMHO.
Not Fonda Henry,Either
McCormack worth the price of admission,but hate Fonda's acting,and not just Henry's!

This may not be the best movie ever made, but seeing John McCormack sing is thrilling. Also, I'm a big Henry Fonda fan.

It may not be the best film ever made, but I love John McCormack & to see him singing several songs is thrilling. Also, I'm a big fan of Henry Fonda.
