This short follows modern-day blacksmith George Garfield as he shoes horses for various Hollywood celebrities. Among them are Joel McCrea, whom he visits at his ranch, and Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams, whose polo pony needs a new shoe. Some of the celebrities he supposedly visits are not shown together with him on the screen. Written by

Interesting documentary short takes a look at blacksmith George Garfield who is best known for helping Hollywood stars with their horses. Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, John Garfield, Tim Hold, Pricilla Lane, George Tobias and Joel McCrea are just a few of the stars on display here. I'm not sure if horse buffs will find too much to enjoy here but film buffs outta get a kick out of the large cast on display. A lot of the footage comes from movies or promotional stuff but there's some nice footage of McCrae clowning around with Garfield. We also get some nice footage of Garfield working on McCrae's horse and fitting him with the proper shoes.
