Edythe Elliott in The Great Mike

The Great Mike

1944 NR

Jimmy Dolan (Robert "Buzz" Henry) and his trusty horse, Mike, can deliver newspapers faster than anyone. So nobody is surprised when a wealthy thoroughbred owner (Pierre Watkin) suggests that Mike would make an excellent race horse. The plot thickens when local gangsters attempt to take Mike as part of a debt repayment scheme, leaving Jimmy with little hope of keeping his champion. Carl Switzer (better known as Alfalfa from "Our Gang") co-stars.
