Movie Summary
The Brave One is a bull named Gitano (or Gypsy). Mexican lad Michael Ray adopts Gitano after saving the animals life during a storm. The friendship between bull and boy is threatened when Gitanos legal owners claim the animal and ship it off to the bullring. Moved by the boys plight, the President of Mexico signs a pardon for Gitano-but not soon enough to prevent the bulls appearance at the Plaze de Mexico at Mexico City, where he faces top matador Fermin Rivera. The Brave One was helmed by Irving Rapper, a man best known for his Bette Davis vehicles at Warner Bros. Based on a true incident, the film earned a best story Academy Award for one Robert Rich-who, much to the embarrassment of the Academy (and the delight of civil libertarians) turned out to be blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Long available only in its flat, black and white TV version, The Brave One was recently restored to its Technicolor and CinemaScope glory by the American Movie Classics cable service. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
