I saw this film on TV in the '50's. Have been looking for it since video disks came on the scene (pre-VHS for you young'ens). The movie was my introduction to the Lippizaner breed of horse. And the first time I saw the stallions dance was a "goosebumps" moment for me. It still is. Other than the horse Florian, the story concerns two people, a groom and an aristocrat, separated by class, but united in their love for a horse . . . and eventually for one another. All (horse AND lovers) are separated and set adrift in the storm that is World War One. This is a story of the fall of an empire. A tale of love, of loss, of peril, and of eventual salvation and reconciliation. A baroque "Black Beauty." I would REALLY like a copy of this film.
