A boy and his horse.
3 June 2003 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable. Very colorful. Beautiful scenery, but lacks the success and impact of the original MY FRIEND FLICKA(1943). A young boy(Roddy McDowall)tries to train an albino colt into a race horse. Other players are:Preston Foster, Rita Johnson and a very cute Diana Hale. This 78 minute technicolor film is full family fare.
