Storyline

While working in Mexico, model Bette Ford---yes, that one---and her girl friends attend a bull fight. They also visit a matador's ranch, where Ford braves the charges of a week-old bull...uh...calf. That convinces her she should become a bull fighter, and she travels throughout Mexico, taking formal training and fighting bulls on ranches and at small fairs. Basically, a travelogue with a story featuring a pretty model. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A minor item nominated for a Best Short Subject Oscar...
5 June 2012 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A personable young lady by the name of Bette Ford attends a bullfight in Mexico and then gets hooked on the art of fighting in the ring. Plucky girl that she is, the film really has no other hook to gather interest other than watching a brave girl take some rough training and actual fights with a few moments of danger to spice them up. Some of the scenes in Mexico are picturesque and well photographed.

The Technicolor photography is probably what helped this win an Oscar nomination for Best Short Subject, but it's really of very limited interest without even the framework of a story to make the 20 minutes of running time more fascinating.

Nothing special, but Bette Ford comes across as a very plucky gal.
