Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The touching bond between a cavalry horse and the doughboy whose life he saves provides the basis for this syrupy war drama. After the horse's heroism, he and the soldier are nearly inseparable until an officer intervenes and separates them. This enrages the soldier and he deserts. He is captured and things look bleak until the US president intervenes and reunites the soldier and his beloved steed.
