What do you guys think?

To be honest, I think the acting in Sallie Gardner at a Gallop, or 'Horse in Motion' as the title I personally prefer, is really bad. The actor looks at the camera, and that's just acting 101. And the plot is so linear I fell asleep half way through.

this is the movie that got me in to movies. if you're looking for a Great Film, you can't do any better than sallie gardner at a gallop, baby

Didn't realize you guys did an actual cast, hilarious. My actual laugh out loud moment was when Slappy said, "this is an older film".
