An enjoyable and engaging tale, this follow-up to MY FRIEND FLICKA is every bit as entertaining as the original. Ken McLaughlin (Roddy McDowall, returning from the original film) is trying to break in Thunderhead, the title horse. The all-white colt is trained for racing, and Ken enters
him in competition. At a county race it appears Thunderhead is going to win when the horse suddenly pulls a tendon. Ken is content to restrict his use of Thunderhead to his father's ranch, but trouble brews when the albino horse who sired Thunderhead goes wild. That horse causes trouble for all
the ranchers in the valley by stealing mares, but eventually it is challenged by Thunderhead. The brave colt saves Ken, then takes on the albino. The two horses engage in a terrific fight, with Thunderhead defeating his renegade father. Ken's horse returns to his master, but shows a desire to live
free on the range. Though heartbroken, Ken understands what is best for his friend and allows the horse to go free. The film is well acted, though the players are really secondary to the real stars of the film: the horses and the beautiful Utah locations. Perfect family viewing.
