Storyline

A cowboy finds, captures and patient trains a beautiful wild stallion until a bond develops between the two that is almost unbreakable. The cowboy's brother, however, needing money to pay off debts, trades the horse, and tries to sneak the horse out of his pen. The horse, however, senses something is wrong and struggles against being taken, and in the process accidentally kills the brother. In addition, the horse and his rider are separated when the cowboy joins the army, and the horse winds up being sold to perform on the rodeo circuit. When the cowboy returns from military service, he sets out to find his beloved horse. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Great. Touching. A Must See.
24 November 2008 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Just saw it for the first time, and bought the DVD on eBay. Very fine movie of a man, played excellently by Fess Parker, who tames a wild stallion, Smoky, and how they bond. The secondary plot concerns the growing love affair between Fess and the pretty Diana Hyland, who sort of reminds me of Inger Stevens. Shades of Fury and many scenes are reminiscent of Black Beauty. But it is the horse who is the star in this movie. The horse was not played by Fury, for those of you who are thinking that, as I, myself did. I totally recommend this movie. Great family fare and a lovely, touching story. A must see and a must see for every member of the family.
