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 <>

Horse Whisper: 50's style!
26 January 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Rather interesting movie here that combines melodramatic weepie with a western. Bill Edwards stars as a soldier who gets out of the service to become a cowboy, only to learn that he slowly going blind! When he gets to the ranch, he comes across a wild horse that No one can break! But of course, he just walks up, and the horse is like putty in his hands. He decides that the horse will be, yes, his seeing eye-horse! Soon, he falls in love with a ex-nurse, who catches on that he's slowly going blind (she caught him riding his horse with a handkerchief over his eyes!) but he doesn't want pit from her. Will he see her again? There's a whole pile of other things, wild horses, the horse's mate and his kid, her former beaus, a forest fire that wander in and out, they're throwaway plot devices. They don't slow the story down, they're padding it, yet the movie doesn't really seem too long because of it. I really liked Bill Edwards in this role. Big strong man who faces up to the fact that he's human (and the fact he has Super Horse helps too).

This film is fine except for one glaring point. There's about 5 minutes of horse fighting in this. It looks like it was staged just for this film, and there's no WAY that the horses here could not have escaped any injuries from the fights seen here. No animal protection laws yet! Anything goes! Tsk.
