Too Old To See The Testicles
Oh, no; the reviewer who was "Too Old To See The Fantasy" was also, apparently, too old to see the balls. There were *definitely* testicles, in this film, on both the stallions (definitely stallions!).

This film will never lose its allure for the horse-crazy, though one wonders "how" they filmed certain sequences, such as the 'fight to the death' scene, in the years of trip-wires and prior to the disclaimer "no animals were hurt or abused in the making of this film". That horse-fight sequence was (mostly, if not entirely) the real thing; they put two stallions together and let them go at it. My guess is that they sedated the one horse who was "killed", for the final shot.

Still a winner, for the kid who just can't get enough of horses!
