Legendary (and, to some, infamous) African-American comedian Stepin Fetchit made his first screen appearance in In Old Kentucky. This second cinemazation of Charles T. Dazey's war-horse play throws out most of the original plot in favor of a new yarn involving a returning soldier (James Murray), who rescues his family estate from rack and ruin. The play's famous Kentucky Derby finale remains, however, and it's as pulse-pounding as ever. Stepin Fetchit's role of "Highpockets" provides a few oases of welcome comedy relief. In Old Kentucky would be filmed for a third time in 1935, rewritten to accommodate the talents of Will Rogers.
