See the world's famous race horses, Man, O'War, Negof ol, Morvich, Fair
Play, The Finn, (Sire of Zev) Virginia's Future and others. Everybody who
loves a horse or a dog, or even a cat, must often wonder what is taking place
inside their heads, behind those watchful eyes; what they really think about
themselves and us; what they could say if they could only talk. In "Ken
tucky Pride" Virginia's Future takes the bit in her teeth and talks right
out about horses and life in general. . You'll never forget this picture.

Based on the story, "The Outlaw"
The story is replete with adventurous moments and terrific action. In trans
cribing the novel to the screen, the activity of the plot has been greatly en
hanced. Buck is just the kind of man you would imagine the hero to be. He
is rugged, lives and breathes the great outdoors, and conducts himself like a
true westerner. The big Fox sta?s forte is performing hazardous deeds. The
present story gives hijn ample opportunity to wade literally through peril
ous ventures. There are fights aplen-ty hard fast rides more fights.
