Excellent historical story about Seabiscuit.
14 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very moving story but to watch and hear the True Story makes it all that more desirable to watch the depression era movie. Many things factored into making Seabiscuit the winner that he was but there is a domino effect to the end result. It starts with the horseless carriage made by General Motors; an entrepreneur, Mr. Charles Howard; and a Dr. Doolittle type of man named Tom Smith, who could relate to Seabiscuit as a sixth sense visionary. It is a very moving and interesting biography of this wonderful thoroughbred horse. To miss the movie and the True Story would be remiss. It is an excellent historic event for all people but also a lesson for children who often will give up on an aspiration too soon. This imparts to the silver screen a living replica of the Little Engine that Could through Seabisuit. I highly recommend this for old and young; an excellent family movie. See it twice to appreciate all aspects of the event that made Seabiscuit a winner over the Triple Crown Winner, War Admiral.
