Movie Info

In this drama, a Bostonian socialite marries the owner of a racehorse and begins a life of globe-trotting from international track to track until her hubby runs out of money. In desperation, he borrows money from an ex-girlfriend who decides that she will not let him leave her again. Meanwhile, the wife is beginning to wonder why she married him and begins contemplating divorce. Things change when her philandering spouse dumps the other, decides to rebuild his stables, and bets every last nickel on his one remaining horse's Kentucky Derby run. His horse barely loses to his wife's horse. Fortunately, the couple makes up and they live a long, happy life together. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Homestretch

All Critics (1)

In this picture, Miss O'Hara starts acting. It's a little early to announce the results of this experiment. But she and Mr. Wilde have a bedroom scene that really arouses emotion and that, they tell me, is the primary intention of acting.
