The Brave One is a 1956 American drama film directed by Irving Rapper and starring Michel Ray, Rodolfo Hoyos, Jr., and Elsa Cárdenas. It tells the story of a young Mexican boy who tries to save his beloved bull Gitano from the bullfighting arena.

The Brave One was the last film to win the Academy Award for Best Story before the award was discontinued, and was nominated for two other Academy Awards: Best Film Editing and Best Sound.

The writer was originally credited as Robert Rich, the nephew of the King Brothers and a pseudonym used by Dalton Trumbo, who was not presented with the Academy Award until 1975, was blacklisted as one of the Hollywood Ten in 1947 after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee.
