Overview

Veterinarian Ronald Reagan contracts anthrax from treating diseased cows in this horsey melodrama from Warner Bros. In fact, Reagan's dutiful Dr. Larry Hanrahan is so busy with the cows that he completely ignores a summons from lady horse breeder Rory Teller (Alexis Smith) to treat her prize-winning stallion. Rory is pretty peeved over what she perceives as a slight and briefly, ever so briefly, contemplates accepting a proposal of marriage from smooth-talking author Stephen Purcell (Zachary Scott). Until, that is, the seriousness of Larry's condition finally forces her to take a drastic measure: to treat the dying vet with the same serum he had used on the cattle. According to some reports, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were scheduled to star in Stallion Road as a follow-up to the hugely successful The Big Sleep (1946). Rather than appear in what they rightfully considered a Grade-B production, they chose to go on suspension.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Stallion Road, an on-screen credit promises, was "produced with the cooperation of the American Humane Association," a relief, presumably, to anyone fearing that the cattle -- let alone Ronald Reagan -- actually came down with anthrax. The anthrax outbreak is, in retrospect mostly, the only interesting aspect of this rather plodding drama; that and some fine scenery apparently filmed on location in the Sierras.
