Audience Reviews for Gypsy Colt


You cost me my job and I'll slit your ugly throat A poor farming family has to sell their prize horse in order to obtain enough money to plant their next crop and make a living. The daughter of the household is heartbroken by the decision, but she reluctantly understands; however, the horse does not understand. The horse repeatedly breaks out of its stable and returns to the poor family. How will the new owner deal with his slippery horse? "We're just wasting money nobody's got to waste." Andrew Marton, director of The Last Roman, Birds Do It, The Thin Red Line (1964), It Happens in Athens, King Solomon's Mine, Gentle Annie, and Wolf's Clothing, delivers Gypsy Colt. The storyline for this picture contains a classic animal genre theme. The animal is loved by an only child. The child losses the animal. By some miracle or act of kindness the child obtains the animal back. The settings and character delivery was solid in this movie and the acting fit the genre perfectly. The cast includes Lee Van Cleef, Frances Dee, Donna Corcoran, and Ward Bond. "I don't know how they keep that horse alive." This movie grabbed my attention because it starred Lee Van Cleef (one of my favorite western genre actors). This movie was fairly standard and in-line with numerous animal genre pictures. There are a few interesting sequences that are surprising because it is a horse performing the stunt; but overall, this is an above average family drama. "You don't suppose they put pops in jail because I stole you, do you?" Grade: B-
