An all time Favorite
22 December 2013 | by milton-freddySee all my reviews

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. Alice O'Frederics put her best effort into this, and it also secured her career as a director henceforth. The film was actually very good, lending its believability to the naive and goodhearted approach to life that still lingered in the minds of people in the early Fifties. Even then the picture painted of the rural landscape was on its way out being replaced by more industry like and less romantic approaches to farm production. People knew that but craved the revival of the nostalgic old days when society worked as it should with humanity and social togetherness opposing the evils threatening the local community
