I enjoyed watching this film very much. What a joy to watch a film which can be shown to any age group. There is lovely scenery with gorgeous horses, including a sled pulled in the snow by four miniature horses. The costumes looked very authentic. There is a religious theme to the story's moral. It also has the human interest plot. And the film deals with prejudice at the turn of the century. The director used old homes in Georgia and some of the filming was done locally. It was fun to recognize the locales. One of the actors plays an Indian extremely realistically. One of the actresses sings exquisitely to the wonderful original score. This film is suitable for young people but might appeal mostly to girls.
