Storyline

In the hills and forest surrounding a horse-breeding ranch an unbroken wild mustang (played by a male horse named Autumn Moon, who is not a human actress) who has been a constant challenge to the ranch owner (Milt Swift) and his hired hand Lou (Steve Keyes) who have attempted, and failed, to kill the horse several times as a bad influence on the tame horses of the ranch. One of the cowhands, Gabe (Jack Beutel)and the owner's sister, Nancy (Madalyn Trahey), believe that the mustang can be captured and tamed and be made a valuable asset to the ranch. Despite opposition by Lou, they set out to do so. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

A timepiece, lame but not charmless.
4 November 2011 | by lancekozSee all my reviews

Weird how things like this got made back then. Truly amateurish in all ways, but created out of a real love for the west, horses and ranch life. I get a kick of films like this, ones that try to be semi-documentary in content as they deliver a thin story. We are shown clips of salmon spawning, wild horses running, old fashion lo-glitz rodeo, Indians doing a tribal dance for show. In-between, there are men punching, flying, riding and shooting, and a really lame love story. Take it for what it's worth, I enjoyed it as a pre-dawn distraction from insomnia. I liked all the western plaid coats and handsome hair, but would've liked more pickup trucks.
