Good entertainment with horses
24 March 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The movie is a western build around breeding, catching, and also a bit stealing horses. Nothing too deep but quite entertaining.

There is some beautiful horses in the movie not to forget the wild stallion Black Velvet. And for those more interested in looking at the fair gender Ann Blythe looks great and is not just playing the usual spoiled rich mans daughter but someone that actually have useful skills with horses. The romance in the movie never takes over the movie and get too mushy but just adds a little spice.

This is not the greatest western ever made but beautiful shot and with an entertainment level I would say above average. Strange this movie is so unknown while much better than many more well known westerns. I would recommend it for pure entertainment.
