Found! Favorite Lost Movie

For years I tried to figure out the name of a movie I saw on TV (it was an old movie even then), when I was a kid, about a sailor whose horse died and then he finds a horse on a Pacific island in WWII. I thought the leading man was Robert Walker and searched all his movies to no avail. Then one day I was browsing through my copy of Leonard Maltin's movie book to check something-or-other and my eyes landed on the title "Gallant Bess." I read the description and that was the movie! Starring Marshall Thompson, not Robert Walker! I even found a used copy on the interet, so I got to watch it again! In color! (who knew?) With scenes that had been edited out for Saturday-afternoon TV showings! :) What fun to relive that childhood memory of a favorite movie.

  1. The Internet is an amazing tool for such, ey?
    Like you, I have found things that my own memory could not retain.

  3. Yay! What a happy surprise. I have little bits of movie memories from childhood that I've tried to track down, to no avail. Glad you finally found this!
