Lonely are the Brave

Just saw Lonely are the Brave. Gena Rowlands briefly steals the film ("Believe you me, if it didn't take men to make babies I wouldn't have anything to do with any of you!") but the true standout performance is...

the horse. A pretty blonde (and as Dr. Pookie noted, her legs go ALL the way up) and some hairy looking stuntwork. (SPOILERY interview with Kirk Douglas)

OK, yes, Kirk does a great job as well. And if Bryan ever wants to see whence the apple of D-FENS fell, It didn't fall too far away from the tree of John W. (Jack for short) Burns.
