User Reviews

Recently reviewed archival film at UCLA

Will James' Sand: I recently reviewed this film at the UCLA archives and found it to be charming and well photographed. This could be man finds horse, man loses horse, man finds horse and the girl. Mark Stevens as Jeff Keane is typical of the handsome 'older' leading men of the forties and fifties, who are always attracting younger, in this case 20ish Coleen Gray, to their cause. Case in point: Jeff's expensive saddle-bred stallion, Jubilee, has escape his fire-burning train in the middle of gorgeous Colorado and needs retrieving. Horses are not supposed to be the most intelligent of animals but Jubilee is an exception and becomes adept at living in the wild. Coleen just happens to own 26,000 acres on which Jubilee has staked a claim and agrees to accompany Mark on a quest to 'rescue' Jubilee, after Mark's unsuccessful bid the first time netted him one lost mare - to Jubilee of course. A very young Rory Calhoun as her (not-so-straight shooting) foreman, Chick Palmer keeps his rifle handy as well as his fists. Of course, all's well in the end when Mark faces down the 'killer' Jubilee and smooth talks him into returning to civilization. Look for Iron Eyes Cody and old cowboy star, Tom London in bit roles. Filmed in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado and Lake Arrowhead, California. On a scale of ten - a dated 5.5
