I don't care if this is Faulkner, it stinks!
27 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews and 60 minutes (including ads), not 30 misread lines Paul Henreid, Mary Astor, Evelyn Keyes and Richard Long star in this episode of "Climax!"--a show presented by Chrysler. It's the story of an opportunist (Henreid)--a guy who will woo just about anyone to make his fortune. After wooing the daughter, the creep then dumps her to pursue her mother (Astor) when he learns that SHE controls the family fortune. It's all quite sleazy--with Astor and Henreid turning in very livid performances.

When I travel, I often watch public domain movies and TV shows that I've loaded onto my computer--and most of them come from However, I don't recommend you go to that site for this one, as "Wild Stallion" is a terrible story--even if it was originally from a William Faulkner story ("Night's Gambit"). Now I don't know how much blame you can place on Faulkner--much of the problem seems to be with the production. Like most TV movies of the era, this one was presented live--and a few kinescope copies of such live performances have survived. I usually love these shows, but this one suffers from some sloppy acting (with misread lines and some overacting). It also turns out to be rather tedious, as an hour time slot (not 30 minutes like it says on IMDb) is too much to sustain this story about nasty Southern folks acting nasty.
