STORY: Glenn Ford stars as the rancher Smith, who is driving his family to frustration with his gentle procastinating ways that have kept the farm from doing well. The hay needs to be cut, and he is distracted with his ongoing friendships with a local Nez Perce native american tribe. When a tribal member is wrongly accused of murder, Smith comes to his defense. As a sign of the tribe's gratitude, they help train a horse from the ranch, and they help get the hay crop in on time.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Keenan Wynn, Nancy Olson, and Chief Dan George also star in this movie, and a good song written by Bobby Russell for the movie is featured, "The Ballad of Smith and Gabriel Jimmyboy". While production was started initially by James Algar, Bill Anderson took over as producer fairly early. One of the studios greatest producers, Anderson saw the fim as a chance to appeal to a more mature audiance that a typical Disney film, vital to Disney's growth. Directed by Michael O'Herlihy. The story had been adapted by studio staff storyman Louis Pelletier from a book by Paul St. Pierre titled, "Breaking Smith's Quarter Horse". This movie was released to theatres on March 21, 1969, and was released on video in 1987. It never featured on "The Wonderful World of Disney" television show. It is 102 minutes in length.

Released almost two years after Walt's death, this film was almost unseen by the public since a top studio executive hated the film based on only a few scenes. He cut all funding for promotion of the film so there was no audiance waiting to see it. Even a good review in the LA Times did not help bring the viewers in and it was out of theatres before the word of mouth could send in the crowds. I reccommend this hidden little film in the Disney vault, if you can find it.
