Preciding during the premiere of this film in the movie theater in the province was the popular writer of numerous books about true and honest country people who took up the fight to preserve ownership of the old family farm. 'The red Horses' was the first of a successful line of nostalgic recaptures of these run of the mill novels, and with more than half of the nations population attending the local cinemas seeing this film the foundation for a genre industry lasting more than two decades was founded.
