(1956) Sentimental yet engaging tale of a young Mexican lad (Michel Ray) who raises a champion bull from a calf, then tries to save his pet when it is mistakenly shipped to the bullring in Mexico City. Directed by Irving Rapper from an Oscar-winning script by Robert Rich (aka blacklisted Dalton Trumbo), the bond between the little boy and his noble beast is dramatized with enough conviction to tug at the hearts of all but confirmed cynics, with the added bonus of picturesque Mexican settings and a positive depiction of the story's cultural context, including the art of bullfighting. Some menacing situations and the bullring's violence make it unlikely fare for preschoolers. (A-I -- general patronage) (Not rated) TCM (cable)
