Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Mexican-filmed melodrama was released under a multitude of titles. Running Wild was evidently its working title, but even this apparently changed from day to day. Lloyd Bridges is given top billing, though Dina Merrill carries the plot as a big-city reporter who heads west to cover the activities of a humanitarian movement. Wild horses are being rounded up to be sold to dog-food companies, and a group of pro-animal activists want this practice to be discontinued. Veteran actors Pat Hingle, Morgan Woodward and Gilbert Roland manage to avoid the "take the money and run" attitude that most major names impose upon quickies like Running Wild.
