In 1876, Duncan MacDonald joins the new, 300-member Mounted Police in western Canada, just in time for a dangerous mission. It seems the Cree Indians, raiding across the border in Montana, took two hostages for their safe return to Canada. But MacDonald, with only scout Natayo to help, will need all his diplomacy and then some to extract the captives from the midst of a thousand Cree.Written by

MacDonald states that a mirage is when the sky acts like a mirror showing water that is far away to appear closer. A mirage is a refracted image of the sky on the ground that appears as water. See more »
Small Face, wife of Natayo:
Where are you going, Natayo, my husband?
Across the medicine line to see the new pony soldiers at Fort Walsh. This evil that has happened to these ranchers may be good fortune for us.

Pony Soldier is what you could call a Canadian western (about Mounties and which takes place in Canada) where what counts the most is the visual beauty. You have to remember this film was made before color TV, and when a lot of films where still made in black and white, so it was quite a thrill to watch the beautiful Canadian scenery, the red uniforms of the Mounties, also Indians impeccably dressed. The story about a Mountie's efforts to pacify the Indians, which had taken hostages, also flows easily, quite predictable, with no violent emotions to prevent you from enjoying the colors on the screen. Cameron Mitchell is so well made up as an Indian, that he is unrecognizable.
