Martin Scorsese Presents REPUBLIC REDISCOVERED—over 20 rarely seen films from the storied Republic Pictures library, restored and remastered by Paramount and personally curated by Martin Scorsese. In The Red Pony Robert Mitchum is a ranch hand who helps his employer’s son cope with the death of the pony he raised. John Steinbeck adapted his own novella for this 1949 feature, Republic’s most expensive film up to that time. The original score is by Aaron Copland, which he also arranged and published as an orchestral suite.
Starring Myrna Loy, Robert Mitchum, Peter Miles
Director Lewis Milestone
