Fun Memory
6 February 2002 | by (The Palouse) – See all my reviews

I must've seen this 28 years ago on a rainy day in grade school. I was in Southern California when I learned of the Appaloosa horse from this film. The theme song has floated through my head ever since - "greatest horse a man could ever ride." Now I live on the Palouse where the Nez Perce raised the appaloosa - and I bumped into an ancient video of the movie at the local video store. My daughter (age 6) loves the film now, too.

The main characters (besides the horse) are members of the Nez Perce tribe, and whole some comments about "the Indians" seem less appropriate in 2002 than they did in 1966 or 1973, Disney did a pretty good job of presenting the story in a pro-native fashion. Some good scenes of rodeo clowns to boot. Originally aired on The Wonderful World of Disney.
