Black Horse Canyon (1954)
‘Fitfully Entertaining’ Radio Times
A beautifully shot Western based on Lee Savage’s novel The Wild Horse. Joel McCrea (Foreign Correspondent) stars as novice rancher Del Rockwell, who goes in pursuit of a magnificent wild black stallion hoping to use it for stud purposes, but rival landowners Jennings (Murvyn Vye – Road to Bali) and Aldis Spain (Mari Blanchard - McLintock) have other ideas and want the horse for their own ranches. Directed by Jesse Hibbs (Perry Mason), this exciting saga comes to a thrilling climax and stars award-winning wild stallion, Outlaw.
Calamity Jane & Sam Bass
‘As purty as Western scenery can be and the chases on horseback are dashing’ New York Times
Drifter Sam Bass (Howard Duff – Kramer vs. Kramer) shows up in Denton, Texas and soon attracts the attention of shopkeeper Katherine Egan (Dorothy Hart – The Naked City) and Calamity Jane (Yvonne De Carlo - The Ten Commandments), an infamous wild frontierswoman. The town is gearing up for a big-money horse race – and Sam wants to cash in on the action. He gets lucky with a star horse, and quickly rakes in the dollars. But his seemingly good luck with horses and women soon leads him to disaster, will he turn to crime for a way out? Filmed in Utah, Calamity Jane & Sam Bass (1949) is directed and written by George Sherman (Big Jake), winner of Western Heritage Award (1962) and the Golden Boot Award (1988).

He is found by Dan Mathews (McCrea) a cattle herder on his way to San Diego. As they head toward civilisation together, the youngster is forced to knuckle down and accept the fatherly guidance of Mathews, who teaches him the value of hard work and upstanding behaviour.
