The Lion and the Horse review
16 April 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

A cowboy grows fond enough of a wild horse he captured to steal him from a cruel rodeo showman to whom his former workmates sold it. A modern-day western which strangely tries to hide all evidence of the fact it's set in mid-'50s America. It's a slight but enjoyable tale bolstered by Steve Cochran - who's given a rare chance to play a good guy for once - in the lead. Unfortunately, as with many films about the friendship between a human and a wild animal, the feel-good factor is diminished somewhat by the fact that the human had to first break the animal's spirit in order to befriend him.
