Passing through Birtwick Farms, Bill Dixon (Richard Denning, a young American, arouses Anne's interest when he expresses his hope of finding a "Very beautiful young colt" when he returns to England in two years. When he returns, however, his attitude brings Anne to the realization that she is still considered a "child." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pleasing version but doesn't follow the novel too closely.
28 June 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

There's only superficial resemblances to Anna Sewell's classic in this 1946 movie but this is a not bad piece of Hollywood hokum. Mona Freeman is a pretty and lively heroine as she cavorts on horseback across a Hollywood version of the English countryside and falls in love with handsome American Richard Denning.Very pleasant musical background by Dimitri Tiomkin.
