Watch The Great Dan Patch Online
David Palmer (Dennis O’Keefe), a young chemist, returns to his father’s Indiana farm, to marry a local school teacher and socialite, Ruth Treadwell (Ruth Warrick). David again meets his father’s horse-trainer and the trainer of Dan Patch, Ben Lathrop (John Hoyt), whose daughter, Cissy (Gail Russell), has left high school to help her father. Palmer marries and becomes wealthy through an invention, and is able to indulge his socially-ambitious wife. Palmer’s father dies so he returns to Indiana, where his interest in harness-racing is rekindled, as is his interest in Cissy Lathrop.
