The Great Dan Patch A.K.A. Ride a Reckless Mile, Dan Patch (1949)

An American drama directed by Joseph M. Newman.
A man marries a teacher and moves to a city. His racing horse is injured, but has a colt that grows up to be fast. The man does not get along with his wife and a farm girl is attached to the horse.
Lame, sappy and boring. I didn't like the plot or characters, although they were clearly presented. The style was very much of the time that it was made. It was nearly painful to watch such a long film that I was not interested in at all. I was tempted to turn it off much of the hour and 35 minute duration. I rate it bad because I just plain don't like it.
