This little-seen gem by John Ford tells the story of a thoroughbred largely through the point of view of the horse, who casts her animal gaze on the troubled family of Southern aristocrats who own, sell, and eventually reclaim her, as her colt becomes a futurity winner. Screenwriter Dorothy Yost made a specialty of horse stories, including the 1948 Republic favorite THE STRAWBERRY ROAN. With cameos by several celebrated racehorses of the period, including Man o’ War. New 4K restoration from nitrate elements held by MoMA, funded by Twentieth Century Fox. — Dave Kehr, The Museum of Modern Art
