Though occasionally hampered by its tiny budget, The Great Dan Patch is a reasonably satisfying horse story. The title character was, of course, one of the greatest harness-race horses that ever drew breath. But since Dan Patch couldn't deliver dialogue or conduct an acceptable on-screen romance, the film concentrates on his owner, chemist David Palmer (Dennis O'Keefe). Saddled with an unsympathetic socialite spouse (Ruth Warrick) who cares nothing for horses, Palmer eventually finds happiness with Cissy Lathrop (Gail Russell), the daughter of Dan Patch's trainer (John Hoyt). Black actor Clarence Muse, a "regular" in horse operas of this type, contributes some good moments, including a couple of nice songs. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
The Last Warhorse
An embattled Sydney, Australia family fights to save their harbor-side home as a wealthy Japanese developer makes plans to build a massive hotel complex, and his spoiled son stakes his claim on the family's prized possession - a majestic Clydesdale horse named Sam. An aging scrap merchant, Pop McKenzie doesn't have much but his grandchildren, his steed, and their modest family home. As fate would have it, however, Pop's home happens to sit on some of the most valuable real estate in Sydney. But the fact that the McKenzie's have lived in the same home for generations does little to dissuade a shrewd Japanese builder from drawing up plans to raze their house to make way for a luxury hotel. Later, the developer's son begins to covet Sam, who mysteriously goes missing after the McKenzie's home is vandalized. Determined not to bow under pressure, Pop and his grandchildren vow to get Sam back at all costs, and defend their home as the bulldozers close in. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Black Beauty, Part 1
Anna Sewell's 1906 novel Black Beauty was given its most elaborate and thorough filmization to date in this five-part TV presentation. The scene has been shifted from England to Maryland, but otherwise Sewell's story about 13 years in the life of the beautiful and headstrong colt Black Beauty remains intact. In part one, telecast January 31, 1978, we see how Black Beauty is raised from a foal by the family of farmer Tom Gray (Martin Milner). When Tom suffers a stroke, his wife (Eilleen Brennan) sells both farm and colt. Filmed in Kentucky, Black Beauty was narrated throughout its run by David Wayne. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
