Black Horse Canyon (1954)

This is a beautifully shot Western based on Lee Savage’s novel The Wild Horse.

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.

Bengal Brigade (1954)

Bengal Brigade

This is an American action adventure set in British ruled India in 1857, at the outbreak of the Indian mutiny. Rock Hudson stars as Captain Claybourne – a British officer who is dismissed from his regiment over a charge of disobeying orders.

But as he goes about restoring his reputation, Claybourne soon finds that his duty to his men is far from over.

This thrilling war time drama from 1954 is directed by Golden Globe winner Laslo Benedek (Death of a Salesman) and stars Dan O’Herlihy (Robinson Crusoe) alongside three Star Trek icons Arnold Moss, Torin Thatcher and Michael Ansara.
