This site sounds like it will be enjoyable because I LOVE old movies.
I saw this movie when I was a kid, and it really impressed me. Of course, my tastes were simple; but I thought both Cornel Wilde and Maureen O'Hara were gorgeous, and I was just beginning to "appreciate" the romance between a man and a woman. Also, I was still young enough to appreciate horses. It will live in my memory as one of my young favorites. I guess this movie was made in Cornel Wilde's "heyday." Maureen O'Hara seems to have had a longer "shelf life." She was still good in "Only the Lonely." I was sorry to see that Wilde died several years ago of leukemia. I read O'Hara's bio, "'Tis Herself," and enjoyed it. Also when I was a kid, I enjoyed O'Hara with Henreid in "The Spanish Main."
