Jim Craig has lived his first 18 years in the mountains of Australia on his father's farm. The death of his father forces him to go to the low lands to earn enough money to get the farm back on its feet. Kirk Douglas plays two roles as twin brothers who haven't spoken for years, one of whom was Jim's father's best friend and the other of whom is the father of the girl he wants to marry. A 20 year old feud re-erupts, catching Jim and Jessica in the middle of it as Jim is accused of letting a prize stallion loose. Written by

The Man From Snowy River (1982) demonstrates the quality of the Australian film industry in recent years. The cinematography, the score, the quality of acting - all combine to make this film a romantic classic, a Gone With the Wind parallel. Having grown up with this film, twelve years later, it is the still the most beautiful, most awesomely inspiring epic I have ever seen. Clearly one of the best stories of love, life and horses ever filmed in one of the most astounding paradises on Earth.
