Long DescriptionJudy Garland and Mickey Rooney were both incredibly popular with the movie-going masses and extremely lucrative for MGM Studios. In Thoroughbreds Don't Cry (1937), Garland plays Cricket West, an aspiring singer who helps her Aunt Edie (Sophie Tucker) run a boarding house for jockeys. Rooney is Timmie Donovan, the best jockey on the turf--and he ain't afraid to tell you so (Timmie's known as a "swellhead" around town). When young Englishman Roger Calverson (Ronald Sinclair) arrives with his grandfather Sir Peter (C. Aubrey Smith), Cricket is taken. Roger and Sir Peter intend to race their prize stallion, "the Pookah," and want Timmie as jockey. The genteel Roger and cocky Timmie get off to a rough start, but soon bond over their love of the turf. But all is not as smooth as it seems. Timmie's rascally father "Click" Donovan wants a piece of the action and tests Timmie's loyalties to both Roger and racing. When Sir Peter dies suddenly, Roger is left destitute and must sell the Pookah unless he can somehow get the $1,000 entry fee for the Cup--and get Timmie to ride for him again. The intrepid Cricket tracks down a remorseful Timmie and convinces him to help Roger. But a last-minute maneuver by Click throws their plans out of whack, forcing Roger to make an unexpected decision about the big race. Though not a musical, Garland gets to display her powerful pipes with the recurring "Goin' to Town." Thoroughbreds Don't Cry ends with the three friends happily riding their horse trailer into the British sunset. --Dana Van Nest

This symbology was originally designed to be easily scanned even when printed on dot-matrix printers or on multi-ply paper such as receipts, invioces and alike. Codabar is being replaced by newer symbol sets that store more data in a smaller area but there is already a large install base where these codes are currently being used.


Codabar uses 4 bars and 3 spaces to encode each character. A narrow space is used between characters. The characters that can be encoded using codabar are the digits 0-9 and the characters $ (dollar sign) - (dash) + (plus) : (colon) / (slash) . (period). There are also 4 start/stop characters represented by A, B, C, D or possibly T, N, * (asterisk), E. These start and stop characters are not represented as data just like other barcodes.

Using the 16 different variations of start and stop characters make it possible to identify some applications of the barcode. For example FedEx tracking numbers start with C and end with D while library barcodes start with A and end with B. This doesn't always hold true because there are so many applications of these numbers but this can be a guide to help identify how the barcode is being used.
