Man and Boy is a 1971 Western with a rare dramatic performance from Bill Cosby. After the Civil War, Caleb Revers (Bill Cosby), a black veteran, has 14 homestead acres in Arizona that he wants to turn into a farm. Caleb tries to work the land with his wife, Ivy (Gloria Foster), and son, Billy (George Spell), but finds the white settlers in this frontier land determined to scare him out of the area. After Caleb and Billy manage to nurse a sick horse back to health, they finally have the necessary power to till the land, but a horse thief takes their steed. When Sheriff Mossman (Leif Erickson) refuses to help the struggling family, father and son decide to track down the horse on their own in spite of the hostile racists and challenges of the harsh Southwest environment. Directed by E.W. Swackhamer, this historical drama captures the perseverance required in the Old West from an unusual perspective.
