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 Biblical passage that was read under a candle, for light: starts at Genesis, Chapter 30 & verse 27, (King James Version). This Biblical verse is of cattle sheep & goats. See more »
When in the wild, the stallion has well groomed hoofs and horse-shoes that are clearly visible from the front view of the horse. If he had shoes on from when he was a colt then his hoofs would have out grown the shoes. See more »

It changes so suddenly. One moment it's paradise, the next it's trying to kill you.
Yep, that's how it can be up here. If it was easy to get to know it, it would be not challenging. You've got to treat the mountains like a high-spirited horse; never take it for granted.
It's the same with people, too.

The Man From Snowy River tells it how it is. I go up in the snowy mountains on my horse to drive cattle and love going to the exact places the the movie was made. I have camped over in Craig's hut and camped in the snowy's. There are only a few brumbies left up there because of people shooting them but now and then you catch a glimpse of brown and black, dim shadow's on the grass. It is THE greatest place on earth. I hope everyone who see's this movie appreciate's the magic of the snowy mountains and the high country.
