Above is a crop from a lobby card for ACES WILD (Commodore, 1936) and note the billing for "and Sonny (The Marvel Horse)". Boyd Magers adds: although the horse is billed as 'Sonny', Harry Carey, Jr. told me the horse's name was really Sunny. He died at John Ford's Photo Farm in '51 at age 28.

Les Adams adds: This above photo is shown on page 599 in Shoot-Em-Ups. When we used this still, we had no info on it. It was nearly twenty years later, while visiting with 'Dobe' Carey in his home in Colorado, that I was made aware of the significance of it. Carey picked up the book, flipped to page 599 and asked if I knew who the baby was. When I said I had no idea, he picked up one of several family albums and showed me that still and about three other nearly identical ones and said it was him. I think there was also one he had that showed Harry Sr. and his mother, Olive, standing and holding him that was taken on the set of this film.
