My Friend Flicka Tidbits

Flicka is the story of a boy and his horse. Set at the Goose Bar Ranch in Montana late in the 19th Century, Ken McLaughlin (Johnny Washbrook) and his mother Nell (Anita Louise) and father Rob (Gene Evans) struggled to ranch and deal with the problems of a rough land.

Although filmed in color, CBS ran the show in black and white. When NBC reran it the next year, they showed it in color.

Passings

Anita Louise died in 1970 of a stroke. Frank Ferguson died in 1978 of cancer. Gene Evans died in 1998.
