Great Movie!!! Charlotte Henry is a great actress!
Lena Rivers is about a girl who is really nice to animals. She goes on a vacation to someone's house. Her father lives next-door. She meets a man (Durrie) in the woods who shoots a bunny and she gets very mad. She later finds out that he is her father's ward. She falls in love with him. There is a horse that is very wild and runs at the wrong time. She makes friends with him and gets to keep him. Later she really wants to leave because Durrie got drunk and drove off the road and her grandmother (Gramie) dies in front of her. This is a wonderful movie that I hope you see and enjoy. Starring Charlotte as Lena Rivers, and Beryl Mercer, with Morgan Galloway as Durrie and John Larkin as Lucifer.
