Storyline

A little girl living on an isolated ranch claims to have formed a bond of friendship with a pure white, "wild" stallion. The horse is well known in the area, almost legendary, and supposedly vicious. Is she just making it up, or is she telling the truth? If it's real, isn't it dangerous for her with a "killer" horse? Or is the horse as vicious as he's been portrayed? Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

Looking for Snowfire on video?
10 December 2005 | by (La La Land) – See all my reviews

Sorry. Snowfire will not be released on video or DVD. This has to do with legalities and something to do with the family. I cannot give further details without permission (which I have asked for). Your best bet is to write to WGN and request that they show it, make tapes and circulate them. There is only one copy left. It is in a vault in Chicago and can be rented for something like $150 per showing.

If you are interested in talking to other fans of this film, contact the Snowfire Revival Society mailing list -- a Topica list, linked from the "miscellaneous" links on the left-hand side of the main page for Snowfire at IMDb.

--- I am not Molly McGowan. Ms. McGowan died of Hodgkin's lymphoma about seven years after making this picture.
