My Friend Flicka

Basic theme, necessarily limited in appeal since it's the story of the influence of a wild pony (Flicka) on the lives and philosophy of a small family group, required all the topnotch production values which the producer provided.

With:
Roddy McDowall Preston Foster Rita Johnson Jeff Corey James Bell

Basic theme, necessarily limited in appeal since it’s the story of the influence of a wild pony (Flicka) on the lives and philosophy of a small family group, required all the topnotch production values which the producer provided.

Fine color photography, capable performances by Roddy McDowall, Preston Foster, Rita Johnson and, of course, the magnificent horses, are assets.

Essentially it’s the story of a daydreaming youngster’s longing for a colt of his own, the boy’s complete transformation once his rancher-father fulfills his desire, and the trials and tribulations in taming and nursing the filly back to health.
