Florian/ I would love to find a copy
31 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I see it has been a long time since anyone has commented on this film....I saw it back in the 60's and just loved it......I would just love to find a copy of it on VHS or DVD.....maybe if enough people wrote to Turner classic channel or a channel that plays old movies maybe they would air it...I haven't seen it in many years.....I have seen The Miracle of the White Stallion and I love it too....There is also a movie called The Long Shot that airs on the Hallmark channel from time to time that is about a dressage horse that goes blind and ends up winning a musical dressage contest.....it is also a really good movie....
