Description by

A man and his horse struggle to find a place of their own while remaining true to their unbridled pioneering spirit in the colorful Western tale, Adventures of Gallant Bess. Bess is a wild horse captured after a five-day struggle with wandering farm hand Ted Daniels (Cameron Mitchell). Ted and Bess make the perfect pair, traveling the country, enjoying the pleasures of nature and freedom. They enter a Rodeo contest run by corrupt Bud Millerick (James Millican). The duo steals the show and wins the sizable prize money only to be robbed when Ted breaks his leg. Bess is stolen by Bud while Ted recuperates under the watchful eyes of beautiful Penny Grey (Audrey Long). Love blooms between them, but Ted cannot forget Bess and sets out to find her.

Product Description:

A rodeo star's wanderlust is cooled when he falls in love with a beautiful spectator, but he despairs of giving up the freedom and fame of life on the road with his best friend and partner, Bess the Horse. A tender melodrama that effectively blends the Western hero's conflict between domesticity and the call of the range into the standard "animal hero" storyline.
