Great Performances from everyone...in this Horse themed film
Great Performances from everyone...in this Horse themed film, in addition to British Coronation parade scenes, as well. A true gem of acting chemistry between Leading man Cornel Wilde and leading lady Maureen O'Hara, who performs an surprising emotional crying scene with perfection, even better than actress Halle Berry, Oscar winning 'Monsters Ball' cry scene. However, beautiful actress Helen Walker just about steals every scene she is in with her esquisite beauty, ultra-confident charm and Wit. Lastly, I was amazed by the 1940's era Cardboard Periscope binoculars being utilized as a device to view a parade from behind a massive crowd.
