Well Done Hallmark Remake
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a well done television remake of The Red Pony that stars Henry Fonda and Maureen O'Hara. It is well acted and well photographed and is easily accessible on infinity television. The chemistry and professionalism between Fonda and O'Hara is present and palpable and makes this for must see viewing for classic movie stars. The supporting cast is full of reliable supporting actors such as Ben Johnson, Jack Elam and Richard Jaeckel. Also, a young Clint Howard is the young boy in the tale and does a very nice job. This television movie also won two Emmy for Sound Editing and Music Composition and was well deserved. Check this out if you see on television.
