Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The great African American character actor Frank Silvera was afforded a rare movie starring role in the French short subject The White Mane (Crin Blanc) The title alludes to the film's actual protagonist, a courageous white stallion. Despite repeated attempts, the stallion steadfastly refuses to be captured and broken. There is a delicate fantasy element to the proceedings that might have been shattered had director Albert Lamorisse extended the film beyond its perfect 38 minutes.
