The heart-touching story of Sham, the Godolphin Arabian, is always worth to be seen, not only for children. It is a story of love and devotion between human beings and animals - and about what is it worth to fight for and to be true and devoted to each other. The movie shows a lot of nice and overwhelming shots of horses which really touch the heart. And it also says, that not everybody is a bad human being, although there are lots of them in the world. I missed Grimalkin, the cat, who was the Godolphin Arabian's beloved friend, not only through his bitter and difficult years, but also in the time, the wonderful horse was honored and admired by the people. The movie does not follow Marguerite Henry's book very close, it is understandable that a few changes make a movie much easier and do not damage the story. I would have loved to see some shots in Gogmaggog, England, where the famous Arabian horse found his home where he could stay and live a happy life. The story between the boy Akba and his friend Sham, the Godolphin Arabian, touches the soul.
