      Audience Member OK Simple, 2 beautiful women Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member horses and romance spark this drama Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A nice quaint horse drama set in Indiana, this film had a great pace to it, it just flowed so well. It's a nice film of nice people I'm surprised it wasn't a larger hit for Fox Studio's but it was somewhat of a sleeper. Beautiful locations making the most of the beautiful autumn scenery, it's a real swan song to the golden days of Hollywood. The film stared the then new Lon Maclister who went into Real Estate after acting & was very successful further still, he is also very close to a friend of mine. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member good stuff good cast Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
