This obscure Damon Runyon adaptation stars Jean Parker as Princess O'Hara, the spirited granddaughter of Central Park horse-carriage driver King O'Hara (Ralph M. Remley). When King's beloved horse dies, Princess tries to purchase a new nag, and that's how she inadvertently gets her hands on a "stolen" race horse. Our heroine nearly ends up with a lengthy prison term before the story is resolved during the climactic Big Race. Leon Errol garners most of the film's laughs as minor-league sharpster named Louie. Princess O'Hara was remade in 1943 as the Abbott & Costello vehicle It Ain't Hay.
