1920's County Fair was the first of three filmizations of Neil Burgess' popular story. The plot centers around a discredited jockey who tries to redeem himself. With the help of the daughter of his employer, our hero exposes the genuine villains and wins the Big Race. Future director David Butler plays the wronged jockey, while Edythe Chapman and popular child star Wesley "Freckles" Barry appear in support. County Fair was remade by Monogram Pictures in 1932 and 1937.
