I remember a Will Rogers movie from the 1930s about a racehorse that would not run fast until it heard the song “Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay.” What was the title?
Norman Ward, Englewood, Fla.

The 1934 movie was “David Harum,” in which Rogers played a small town banker and horse trader. A cowboy, vaudeville star, syndicated columnist, humorist and actor, Rogers made nearly 50 silent films and 21 talkies before he was killed in 1935 at age 55 in a plane crash with famed aviator Wiley Post. Rogers’ hometown of Claremore, Okla., boasts a 19,000-square-foot museum called the Will Rogers Memorial.
