This lightweight British satire on Freudianism stars Cecil Parker as a prominent doctor and Anne Crawford as his psychiatrist wife. Parker and Crawford are taken aback when their innocent young son Anthony Lang draws a picture of a horse, with all necessary reproductive equipment lovingly detailed. While Parker is all for paddling his precocious offspring, Crawford decides that the boy should be rewarded for so freely expressing his subconscious. This minor misunderstanding brews into a major brouhaha involving split-ups, supposed infidelity and tearful reconciliations. Tony Draws a Horse was adapted (and somewhat toned down) from a play by Lesley Storm.
