Movie Info

In the Salinas Valley of California, young Tom Tiflin (Peter Miles) lives on his family's ranch with his parents, Fred (Shepperd Strudwick) and Alice (Myrna Loy), who are constantly at odds, and with his rambling grandfather (Louis Calhern). Capturing Tom's admiration, however, is the hired ranch hand, Billy Buck (Robert Mitchum), a venerable horse expert. When his father gives him a pony as a gift, Tom learns the importance of responsibility, but also has to face the pain of loss.

    I don't like animal movies in the first place, but I also got weirded out by the strange relationship between Mitchum and that kid in the movie. This movie was just stupid.

    A bit puerile and precious but okay family film with good work from Mitchum and Myrna Loy. Louis Calhern has a grand old time as the grandfather dispensing old west wisdom like Buffalo Bill.
