| The Original 'Warhorse'
Plot in a Nutshell: A strong bond forms between a career Army man (Walter Huston) and his horse, seeing them through good times and bad.

Why I rated it a '7': While no masterpiece, the film is enjoyable enough for what it is. And it's augmented by the fact that it's loosely based on the story of a real Army horse, albeit from a previous war. The real horse, "Rodney," served in the Spanish American War of 1898 while this film is set during the Great War. Some dramatic license is taken in the film (specifically the cemetery scene towards the end) but overall it remains true to the spirit of the story - namely, that Rodney served his men with such grit, determination and fortitude, and for so long, that when the time came for him to retire, they were not ready to see him go. It's a nice testament to the idea that loyalty and gratitude are not always forgotten, even though war can be hell. Well done, Rodney, and RIP.

7/10 - Would I watch again? (Y/N) - Yes.
