A story from the heart of America...to thrill America's heart!
Ten-year old Ken McLaughlin (Roddy McDowall), who lives on the Goose Bar Ranch, desperately wants a colt of his own. Frustrated by the boy’s constant daydreaming, Ken’s father (Preston Foster) finally lets him choose any horse in the herd.
Ken picks a beautiful filly whom he names Flicka, but the high-spirited animal comes from a “bad” bloodline that’s considered to be hopelessly wild. To prove Flicka is worth keeping and prove himself as a person, Ken sets his heart on winning the horse’s confidence and ultimately taming her. Along the way, Ken begins to grow up a little and everyone learns some important lessons, in this poignant tale of love, patience, faith, and “hope beyond hope.”

My Friend Flicka - DVD – Richard and Linda D, 09/03/2012
My Friend Flicka, and this film was released in 1943 and not 2003, stars Roddy McDowall (playing the son, Ken), Preston Foster (playing the dad, Rob), Rita Johnson (playing the mom, Nell), James Bell, playing the ranch foreman, Gus), Patti Hale (playing Gusí you daughter, Hildy). The back story in this film concerns Ken, who has returned from boarding school, with less than stellar grades. His father requires him to study a certain amount of time, each day, with lackluster results. Since Ken so desperately wants a horse (pony) of his own, he pouts and whines until his mother speaks to Rob. Reluctantly, dad relents, hoping Ken responds responsibly toward the pony and reaches a new level of maturity. Naturally, Ken moves along nicely toward maturity, but not without extreme pathos displayed on the screen. When viewing this film, it has none of the high intensity of Lord of the Rings or Star Wars; but in its own quiet way, it demonstrates that Hopalong Cassidy, the Cisco Kid and Roy Rogers had virtue and maturity in full view, either in the movie theatre or on the television screen, viewable for boys and girls during the 40ís and 50ís (when we, your reviewers, grew up). Though the film moves at a leisurely pace, you wonít be disappointed in the viewing. Enjoy!
