Storyline

A little girl living on an isolated ranch claims to have formed a bond of friendship with a pure white, "wild" stallion. The horse is well known in the area, almost legendary, and supposedly vicious. Is she just making it up, or is she telling the truth? If it's real, isn't it dangerous for her with a "killer" horse? Or is the horse as vicious as he's been portrayed? Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@bluemarble.net>

The Best "Family Classic" Movie for horse lovers.
24 February 2001 | by slushpumpzSee all my reviews

I too, grew up watching "Family Classics" with Frazuer Thomas on WGN-TV on Sunday afternoons. I could sing the whole song with the exact words. Opening scene was Molly and her sister sitting on a fence watching the rustler chasing Snowfire to the rim of a canyon, and with out any where to go, Snowfire leaps to the river below.

I remember hearing the WGN had a fire in the classic movie vault in the 60's. I hope that "Snowfire" was not one the movies lost.

I would love to get a copy of this movie on VHS. If anyone knows where one can be found, Please e-mail me.

Thanks, to all the horse lover out there that remember the true "Classics"
