Gentlemen From Dixie
Released after serving a long prison sentence for a murder he did not commit, Thad Terrill seeks refuge at Terrill-Oaks, his brother Lance's horse farm. A gifted horse trainer, he is a tremendous help to Lance, and is adored by his six-year-old niece, Betty Jean. But Margaret, his brother's beautiful but cold-hearted second wife, has nothing but contempt for the ex-convict. Thad is pained to discover that Margaret is carrying on an affair with Matt Brawley, a wealthy horse breeder. At Brawley's urging, Margaret sells Betty Jean's horse, Jumping Jack, breaking the little girl's heart. Even worse, Thad is beginning to suspect that Brawley is the very same man whose lying testimony sent him to prison.
