Steve Cochran Rides Wildfire
8 July 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Wild horse training cowboy Steve Cochran (as Ben Kirby) wants to keep a beautiful black stallion for himself, but the animal is sold to a rodeo showman. He finds "Wildfire" being abused by owner Ray Teal (as Dave Tracy), who won't sell. After leaving a refused $600 payment for the horse, Mr. Cochran sets him free. Later, Cochran trains Wildfire while working for Utah rancher Harry Antrim (as Cas Bagley) and bonding with his cute pigtailed granddaughter Sherry Jackson (as Jenny). The family-friendly trio is threatened by a nasty lion and the return of Wildfire's angry owner... There are some spotty production values, but "The Lion and the Horse" gives you a great look at Cochran in an appealing leading role.

****** The Lion and the Horse (5/17/52) Louis King ~ Steve Cochran, Sherry Jackson, Ray Teal, Harry Antrim
