“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
Based on a Will James story, Sand is a prized stallion, belonging to Mark Stevens (Jeff Keane) that disappears into the Colorado wilderness (filmed on location in Lone Pine, California) after a train accident. When recovered, Sand has developed a mean streak. Suffering various abuses, the original owner finally regains Sand’s trust.
