Storyline

The story centers on the showman Dr. William Key and his performing horse, Beautiful Jim Key. His promoters claimed the horse could read, write and do math. Key, a former slave, was relegated to carnivals so he recruited a one-time promoter for P.T. Barnum to be his front man — leading to the horse becoming a national sensation at the 1904 St. Louis Exposition.
