Trivia

This film inspired a running gag on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (2005). Whenever the name Secretariat was mentioned, a doorbell would ring, followed immediately by two men in a crude horse costume trotting around the stage while Ferguson danced in the background. On Ferguson's last episode, he revealed that Bob Newhart played the horse. See more »

One of the Best Movies of All Time!
21 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is EXCELLENT and should have been up for Best Picture and best supporting actress (Diane Lane) and actor (Malkovich) but since Hollywood is so perverted, this movie wasn't even nominated. I watched the top films according to their nominations and they were ALL trash compared to this film. The story is unbelievable and I remember Big Red and watching him that year in the Derby. No bad language (or very little), a great family movie, wonderful acting, and an unbelievably true story. What more do you want in a movie? Wallace did an exceptional job with this film and deserves more credit than he got. Diane Lane was awesome and Malkovich did a great job as well. No other story like it in sports history and the movie did a great job of bringing out the details of the story and its accuracy. This is one film you'll want to buy and keep forever. It is now our entire family's favorite movie and we have watched it at least 10 times now. The cinematography is incredible! ABSOLUTELY GREAT FILM!..and the bonus feature entitled, "Heart of a Champion" is almost as good as the movie!
