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

Really a tribute to the blacksmith who works on Hollywood's horses...
Trite little short supposedly shows Hollywood stars on horseback--but instead lifts clips from their films in the case of Bette Davis (DARK VICTORY) and Olivia de Havilland (GOLD IS WHERE YOU FIND IT).
Otherwise, the viewer gets brief glimpses of Priscilla Lane, Dennis Morgan, Joan Leslie, George Tobias and Joel McCrea in brief outdoor shots on horseback.
Really just a chance for Warner Bros. to remind patrons of their stars, but cheating just a little by using only film clips for Bette and Olivia.
Summing up: Easy to miss.
