Allied Artists

IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Warner Archive Collection)

Little Molly becomes enamored with the white mustang her rancher father captures and brings home. When dad tries to brand her horse he tells her it won't hurt, so she decides to brand herself in a bizarre scene. She also believes that "Snowfire" can talk to her, and proves it many times over. She releases him back to the wild, and he returns the favor by saving her life when she falls off a cliff. Eventually Snowfire ends up back at the ranch, but only with the condition that he can visit his wild "family" whenever he wants. Beautifully filmed in widescreen in Bryce Canyon, Utah, but only the most devoted horse lovers, or those who saw it at an impressionable age, will be able to tolerate the outrageous plot devices and stilted acting.
