Susan Richards in The Rocking Horse Winner

The Rocking Horse Winner

1950 NR

In this 1950 classic, Paul, a young, introverted boy, escapes his mother's constant complaints about poverty by climbing onto his rocking horse. He soon discovers that while riding furiously on the horse, he gains the ability to pick a winner at the racetrack. His family quickly becomes rich but squanders the money as soon as they get it, forcing Paul to exhaust himself trying to pick more winners ... with tragic results.
