    When I was very young, I owned a Chestnut thoroughbred which I sold when I entered the service. Rex ended up in a stable on Doheny Drive where Clark Gable saw him and picked him for his mount in Across the Wide Missiouri.

    For years I tried to find this movie and - finally -got from WB

    Rex probably died 50 years ago but, for me, he's still alive.

    Thank you, WB

      Comments about Across The Wide Missouri:

      Some of the standard western plot elements are here, but they're mixed with some original concepts about that rare breed of individual known as the mountain man. I found the movie to be a lot of fun; an engaging tale of these hardy men and their day-to-day struggles on the raw untamed frontier. There were also some surprises along the way, building to a rousing climax with Cable in a battle to the death with Mantalban in a fight scene that packs a visual wallop. The scenery was breath-takingly gorgeous in this early Technicolor outing. It was a fun adventure, with Clark Cable's charisma carrying the picture. My wife and I both enjoyed it.

        This is a good Western starring Clark Gable. This movie has great color and the video is quite good. Warner did a great job on this transfer and I'm really glad to have this on DVD. Clark Gable is great in this Western and I would recommend this to any fans of Clark Gable to Western fans.

                      This movie is commonly under rated by movie critics but it was directed by the great action director William Wellman and has beautifully color filmed western locations. Unlike most westerns this movie is actually about the mountain men who trapped and hunted in the Rocky Mountains long before marshall Dillon ever made the scene. It made me realize how few films actually deal with that subject and this film does a good job telling about the lives of these men but also spins a darn good action packed story besides.
