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

More like a chance for Warner Brothers to show off their stars.
Although this short film purports to extol the virtues of blacksmiths and, in particular, a blacksmith who serves various Hollywood celebrities (all of which just happen to work for Warner Brothers), the film really is just a case of shameless self-promotion by the studio. The narration and laudable comments notwithstanding, the film is nothing but shot after shot of stars on horseback. Now I know that some of them truly did love horses and were excellent equestrians, but I also wonder if some of them couldn't tell one end from the other and were just stuck in this short to promote their careers! Regardless, it's pretty dull stuff and seems so scripted that it doesn't even seem to offer a 'behind the scenes' look at the stars as they play. Mildly interesting at best.
