Description
Meet Bess, the gallant horse who earned World War II glory! Based on a real-life incident, this inspiring film tells the story of orphaned farm boy Tex Barton (Marshall Thompson), who leaves his beloved horse behind when he enlists in the Navy. Pneumonia claims the horse and Tex is heartbroken – until he rescues an injured mare on a South Pacific island, a four-footed heroine who returns the favor by saving Tex and his Seabee buddies from a Japanese attack. Thompson’s engaging rapport with his equine costar foretells his success in more animal-friendly fare: he portrayed African veterinarian Marsh Tracy in the hit movie Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion and its TV spinoff Daktari.

      Since I love horses, this movie is just what I was looking for. I had ordered another movie which had the same name, but it is this movie I was really looking for. They just don't make movies like these any more.

          Comments about this product:

          Lassie Come Home doesn't have anything on Gallant Bess. Here is a story that is a beautiful testimony to the 'heart of a mare' and how equines and humans are a match made in heaven. Anyone that loves animals, especially horses can appreciate the simple message in this film...love and committment.

            A heartfelt story that will grab viewers of all ages. I saw this film as a young child and it's memory has stayed with me forever. A tribute to our military is interwoven with a story that any animal lover will enjoy!! Thank you for making this movie available.
