Equus (1977) A psychiatrist, Martin Dysart, investigates the savage blinding of six horses with a metal spike in a stable in Hampshire, England. The atrocity was committed by an unassuming seventeen-year-old stable boy named Alan Strang, the only son of an opinionated but inwardly-timid father and a genteel, religious mother. As Dysart exposes the truths behind the boy's demons, he finds himself face-to-face with his own.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Martin Dysart: Passion, you see, can be destroyed by a doctor. It cannot be created.
  • Martin Dysart: There is now, in my mouth, this sharp chain - and it never comes out.
  • Martin Dysart: When Equus leaves, if he leaves at all, it will be with your intestines in his teeth - and I don't stock replacements.
  • Martin Dysart: That's what his stare has been saying to me all this time: 'At least I galloped - when did you?'
  • Dora Strang: I only know that he was my little Alan - and then the devil came.
Movie Trivia:
  • Peter Firth, who had played 17-year-old Alan Strang on the London stage from July 1973 and on Broadway from September 1974, was actually nearly 23 when the movie version was filmed in September 1976.
  • Richard Burton reportedly rejected the initial choice for the role of Alan Strang, telling the producers the actor was too tall. He insisted Peter Firth, who had starred in the play with him at the Plymouth Theater on Broadway in April 1976, should be cast as Firth was about the same height as him.
  • The producers did not initially want Richard Burton to play Martin Dysart, due to his reputation for alcoholism and overacting. Media reports indicated Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson were interested in the part. Burton was forced to make Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) before they would relent.
  • Dora Strang's tea service is called Memory Lane by Royal Albert Bone China.
  • Legendary second unit director Yakima Canutt received a final screen credit, as a consultant on the stunts.
