this was an offbeat role for Steve Cochran who was typecast in Hollywood in tough guy, gangster roles. The rapport between the cowboy, the stallion and a young girl played by Sherry Jackson was gentle and realistic. Filmed in Warner color, on location in Wyoming, it rings true to life as the cowboy searches for and rescues a horse from a short, cruel life in a rodeo. There is humor and action, with an escaped circus lion, a brutal owner, as the cowboy bonds with the abused animal. A good film for adults and children and a plea for the protection of wild horses. (still in jeopardy today) And if you are a Steve Cochran fan, a rare treat. And the film scheduled to be shown on TCM in late January, if only this might result in a DVD release, we wouldd have a happy ending for sure:)
