Western favorites Ray "Crash" Corrigan and Hoot Gibson head the cast of the 12-chapter Republic serial The Painted Stallion. Corrigan plays American federal agent Clark Stuart, on assignment in Santa Fe to draw up a trade agreement with the newly installed Mexican governor. Meanwhile, Walter Jamison (Hoot Gibson) leads a wagon train from Missouri, hoping to take advantage of the new agreement. Among Jamison's passenger are famed frontiersman Jim Bowie (Hal Taliaferro) and a very youthful Kit Carson (Sammy McKim). The destinies of all these personalities intersect when villainous ex-governor DuPrey (LeRoy Mason) schemes to undermine the treaty and take over the New Mexico territory for his own vile purposes. Somewhere along the way, Davy Crockett (Jack Perrin) joins the "good guys" in their efforts to thwart the despicable DuPrey. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Travis S (es) wrote: I would dare say Alan Rickman is one of the most talented actors to have a camera pointed at him. The movie itself was completely original. I have never seen anything like it, and probably will never see anything of the sort again. I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

Bill Y (jp) wrote: This was a fantastic movie with a great performance from Ben Kingsley. I was thinking while watching this movie if it needed to be as long as it was and with his life story it needed to be a three hour movie. One of the best biography pictures ever.
Peter S (jp) wrote: Well, it's a musical, and it didn't really piss me off in any way, so of course, it's getting 5 stars from me. The performances are top notch, the songs are delightful and so is the dancing. Does it have a thin plot? Of course it does, but so do most musicals, and generally, the music in musicals save it from being what would otherwise be a terrible film. Is it stretched to its limits, the length equivalent to a Martin Scorsese or Quentin Tarantino epic? Yes, but so were most musicals back in the day. An all around fantastic, delightful film, recommended to all.
Joey S (br) wrote: Although I was expecting a thriller rather than a drama, Knife in the Water is an expertly-made film in nearly every way, and as the debut of director Roman Polanski it foreshadows the rest of his career with heavy use of religious imagery, spectacular cinematography, and a constant sense of tension.
