The Fighting Stallion stars Bill Edwards as Lon Evans, an ex-GI who is slowly losing his eyesight. Lacking a seeing-eye dog, Lon opts for a seeing-eye horse, training one of his father's stallions for that purpose. Unfortunately, the horse is slated to be destroyed because of its alleged wildness. Lon thinks otherwise, and sets about to prove it--though he hasn't much time. The film slows down whenever the romantic subplot involving Lon and Jeanne Barton (Dorris Merrick) rears its silly head. Overall, The Fighting Stallion is a film in which the title character has all the best scenes.
