Trivia

Joel McCrea's trailing and capture of the black stallion is lifted from the earlier Universal film 'Red Canyon '[1949] to the point that McRea's costume matches Howard Duff's, that film's star. Equine star Highland Dale played the horse in both films. See more »

I saw it during 1955, it was so good it has stuck in my mind.
11 December 2000 | by gregm-9See all my reviews

An excellent family-quality story. Kipling's "Captains Courageous" reset in a Western. Excellent performance by Stockwell as a spoiled kid that makes good. I hope that Universal can be persuaded to release this movie on video.
