For anyone who enjoyed "The Man from Snowy River", here is another great Australian horse flick. The movie cover shows Jeff Fahey, and so there's an assumption that he is the wrangler. He is actually a Merchant (Ben) who calls on a particular wrangler friend (Jack) when business requires the movement of horses. But in the course of events, Jack gets deceived and manipulated by a con man into thinking Ben is trying to steal their business. And a debutante named Alice, being young and naive, doesn't understand Ben's financial maneuvers when he tries to save her father's estate. And so Ben is this nice guy trying to help people that he cares about, but misunderstandings end up making his efforts more painful. This movie features Jeff Fahey at his finest, and it is a mystery to me why it didn't become more popular.
