“The Horse” exhibit is now open at he Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada. I was asked to curate five films made in Lone Pine featuring famous horses through a partnership between the museum in Reno and The Museum of Western Film History in Lone Pine. If you are in the area, please come by on a Sunday in April, or visit on May 1 to participate in our panel on horse films featuring me, Petrine Mitchum and Larry Maurice.
The “Made-in-Lone-Pine” Horse series
Scott Jordan (Roddy McDowall) must tame a wild horse he names Midnight and stand by the horse when he is falsely accused of murder, while his prodigal son works to sell stolen horses. The seldom seen picture, filmed in the windy mountains of Lone Pine California, is directed by famous western director Oscar “Budd” Boetticher.
