He attempts to catch a wild horse
24 November 2000 | by dizozzaSee all my reviews

It was just rather interesting how much a person could need something and the skills developed to acquire it, especially capturing something wild, like the white horse with its brown relatives. Anyway, after lassoing it, it winds up dragging him until the rope breaks. That was a cinematic scene. I only saw a reel of this film, a reel that mysteriously was identified as a reel from Westworld.
