Storyline

Young Dan Light (Orley Lindgren), an orphan, is taken in hand by Johnny Wintergreen (Edgar Buchanan),hunter of wild horses for selling to the U. S. cavalry. Dan's grief over the death of his parents in an Indian raid is partially eased by his belief that his pet colt, Top Kick, escaped. Wintergreen takes Dan to a army post, where Major Callan (Hayden Rorke)welcomes the boy into his home. Several years later, Dan (Ben Johnson), now in love with Callan's daughter, Caroline (Martha Hyer), joins Wintergreen as a wild horse hunter. Dan is obsessed with the thought that Top Kick escaped the Indians and finds Top Kick, now a great white stallion, leading a herd of wild horses. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Top Kick
8 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Wild Stallion tells the odyssey of a boy then a man and the horse who became part of is life. Young Orley Lindgren survives an Indian attack that kills his parents and like Corporal Rusty on Rin Tin Tin grows up with the army and becomes Ben Johnson.

Also surviving is Top Kick the white colt that Johnson owned as a boy who now is the leader of a pack of wild horses. The bond is there between Top Kick and Johnson even though the horse is a challenge. But Top Kick proves to be a one man horse despite the cavalry's plans for him.

This is a nice easy to take family film that holds up well after fifty years. Ben Johnson is much like the likable young cowboy he played in Mighty Joe Young who also has romance on his mind for Colonel Hayden Rorke's daughter Martha Hyer.

If you like horse stories, Wild Stallion is a film for you.
