Storyline

Released from a navy hospital following WW II, Lon Evans learns that he faces eventual blindness and returns to his Wyoming ranch. He sees a beautiful white stallion named Starlight and his cowhands Lem and Yancy say he is a killer and cannot be trained. Lon disproves this by training the stallion to act as his guide in preparation for his future blindness. He meets Jeanne Barton, who is staying at a nearby dude ranch and they fall in love, but Lon, knowing that he is going blind, decides he cannot marry Jeanne, and avoids her. A wild black stallion that also roams on Lon's ranch jumps in the corral and kills Lon's pinto stallion. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Starlight The Seeing-Eye Horse Saves the Day
12 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cowboy hero home from the Pacific front is losing his sight. Can he train the FIGHTING STALLION, a super-smart but untrained mustang from the hills to be his seeing eye horse (and lure the pretty nurse from the dude ranch) before everyone finds out he's going blind?

For a B-western, this is above average, if only because this plot is pretty far from the usual rustlers, lawmen, cattleman vs farmers, relative gone bad plots that litter the non-musical B-western. Problem is, the movie still isn't terribly compelling, because of the usual stock footage and wooden acting issues one find in these things. If you are an enthusiast of the genre, this won't matter, even though the modern day trappings (a modern dude ranch, a jeep) might be an annoying reminder of a lesser Gene Autry outing. The somewhat insipid romance, however, takes up a lot of screen time, leaving less time for rootin tootin western animal action.
