PlotEdit

A band of treasure seekers are on a quest to find the fabled Comanche Stallion, whon the Native Americans consider to be a mystical, lucky, and unobtainable horse.[8]

ReceptionEdit

  • Harry Carey Jr., during a March 2003 interview with IGN: When asked "What is your next project?", Carey replied, "Comanche Stallion. This will be my last Western and a film John Ford wanted to make.". When asked "What is the one project that you've always wanted to do, but have yet to be able to?", Carey replied, "Comanche Stallion since 1963."[7]
  • Andrew Pragasam, The Spinning Image: "Horror westerns are few and far between and frequently very weird. In the 1960s, the great John Ford failed to find backers for Comanche Stallion, a supernatural, wild west variant on Moby Dick. One wonders if it would have been anywhere near as strange as The White Buffalo, the mystical/western/monster epic produced by Italian movie mogul Dino DeLaurentiis"[2]
  • Buy Indian: "Comanche Stallion is a film John Ford was trying to make in 1961-63. Harry Carey Jr is now producing. John Wayne and John Ford would be proud. This will be Harry Carey Jr last film and his tribute to the Western master John Ford."[9]
  • BMonster: "You say they don't make 'em like they used to? Don't tell that to Harry Carey Jr., who is mounting a production that "will be filmed in the tradition of John Ford.""[10]
