Storyline

Clint Barkley (MacMurray) first sees Smoky as a runaway, and drives him back to the ranch where he meets the owner, Julie Richards (Anne Baxter). He is given a job on her ranch, but the head cowhand is doubtful about Clint and fears that since he refuses to talk about himself, he must have some dreadful secret in his past. Clint and Smoky become close to each other, weathering the hardships of Western life and the suspicions of others together, until one day, Smoky tragically vanishes. Will Clint ever see him again?

Trivia

Horse trainer Jack Lindell found and trained the horse who played Smoky for three months. He would stand behind the camera and use a series of signals with sticks, somewhat like semaphore, to control the horse's behavior. See more »

Goofs

When Smoky is dragging a wounded Clint, the horse is plainly dragging a dummy, as evidenced by the stiffness of the 'body' and, in one instance, by the dummy's hand getting caught on the stirrup, leaving the crooked arm poking up into the air in an extremely unnatural position. See more »

Quotes

Julie Richards: I haven't even started!

You must own or urge the big wigs to release on DVD
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been looking for this film on DVD or VHS for at least 10 years. This is one of the best horse movies of all time. It is joyful and tearful, but a story of intense love for a horse. About a black stallion that Fred Mac Murray names "Smoky" because where there is fire there is Smoke. This story needs to be released in Digital DVD format. I have been a movie collector for over 45 years, this is one that everybody should see. A true family picture that displays a great tenderness, love, devotion, and courage that you will always remember. The stars Fred Mac Murray, Anne Baxter, and Burl Ives are at their best in their performances. Burl Ives a sings "Jimmy Crack Corn and I Don't Care" which fits the horse ranch fare.
