A boy and his horse
4 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Michael Littlebear is a young Indian boy who saves lost and wounded animals he finds and takes care of them. He wants to be a doctor when he grows up. One of them is a white horse he trains to run in a horse race to obtain enough money to rebuilt father Walsh's church before he dies. With the help of newcomer father Phelan (Richard Basehart), doctor Mills and friend Tony Eagle they will try to make their dream come true. Nice film for all the family, with good values and a simple story. The boy plays his role nicely and the story is worth watching. Singing cowboy Rex Allen plays the original owner of the horse and the song charro bravo.
