Thrilled by a performance she sees at a fair, Sonora (Gabrielle Anwar) tries to land a spot as a daredevil who rides horses off of high dives. With the help of Al Carver (Michael Schoeffling), whose father runs the show, she works toward her goal. An injury to star rider Marie (Kathleen York) paves her way, and she finds herself on the diving platform. Her life looks complete now that she and Al are in love, but she is about to be thrust into the most trying time of her life.Written by
Quoted from the American Film Institute: "Production designer Randy Ser had only two weeks to build a diving tower and a water tank that could be transported from the horse training facility in Newhall, CA, to filming locations in South Carolina. After considerable research, Ser found a manufacturer that constructed its water tanks with bolts rather than welding. He ordered a tank measuring forty feet in diameter and ten feet deep, with a capacity of 88,750 gallons. The tank was built to withstand the water displacement created by a horse and rider with the combined weight of 1,000 pounds. Ser also designed a diving tower that could withstand the sixty-mile-per-hour winds common during hurricane season on the Atlantic coast." See more »

I do not know how many times I watched this movie. It enjoyable every time I see it. Gabrielle Anwar who plays Sonora a runaway is desperately to make her dreams true as a driving girl. A lesson worth learn about in the film. All the performances are great. A film worth the celluloid it printed.
