Beautiful horses but. . . . .
9 December 2014 | by kimberlyking78See all my reviews

The horses are beautiful, but the movie is horrible. The story itself would be grand, but the terrible storytelling makes it trivial. Dubbing is always bad, but couldn't someone have hired some fourth grader to be the narrator? What in the world is Broderick Crawford doing in this film? I thought I was hallucinating when he popped up on the screen. What an odd casting decision. He seems so naked without a fedora. Frankie Avalon is just silly. Remember Mystery Science Theater 3000? I don't think they would have watched this film; it is not even interestingly bad. Perhaps I should have muted the television. Damn. Why didn't I think of that sooner? Anyway, the horses are beautiful.
