Horse movie similar to 1946 movie "Smoky"
13 March 2019 | by tbsutaSee all my reviews

This movie is very similar to the 1946 movie with Fred McMurray called "Smoky". This movie starts out well with the Howard Duff character undertaking the perceived impossible task of capturing a horse called Black Velvet. The horse is incorrigible and cannot be trained but then allows Ann Blythe to train it. So in essence the movie turns into sort of a girl and horse love affair. It seems the movie would have been so much better if it continued with the original story-line which is why I give a low rating. There are other twists but won't go into details and spoil for those who have not watched.
