I LOVE THIS MOVIE. WE NEED THIS TO BE RELEASED ON DVD...PLEASE I WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!!!WOULD LOVE TO OWN IT.
Watched this movie for the first time today. Laughed and cried several times (and I am guy). Went directly online to buy it and was sad to find out it was not available! This is a great movie with an ageless story about the special bond between family members! Awesome!

I saw this when I was a kid ditching school. I was always interested in old movies and read books on the stars, their biographies and such. I would have to say that I really liked this movie and wish I could buy it for my collection. Mickey Rooney and Wallace Berry are a perfect pair to do a movie together I a another of Wallace Berry's movies, been also looking for a western he did with Shirley Temple. I give this movie excellent review and if you have one you are lucky, if you know where I can a copy please email me. Just see the movie on this site and let me know what you think. A movie admirer

MGM's family film formula is very much intact here. The stars work well together (they also appeared in AH, WILDERNESS). Some of Mickey's work is a bit over-the-top, but he's an emotional teen, so it works. Beery, as always, brings an earthy likable quality to his characterization. The operation scene where he desperately needs a drink is probably one of Beery's best...there's a lot of truth in this picture. Worth seeing.

This is an exellent film about thoroughbred racing.It is well done and presents a more realistic view of horse racing than "Seabiscuit."Whrther you are a racing or just enjoy movies,you will appreciate the performances of Wallace Beery and Mickey Rooney.The emotive scenes will bring a tear to every eye.I hope "Secretariat" is this good.
Wallace Beery and Mickey Rooney star in a classic tale of a neer do well former vet and a starry-eyed wanna be who team up as an original odd couple. The marriage propoasal scene between Margaret Hamilton and Wallace Beery is worth the price of admission. Mickey who is a workout rider inherits a horse Lady Q. for past debts owed to him. Her inability to run well attracts Tom Terry(Beery) to operate and make her into a top quality thoroughbred, capable of winning a big stakes purse. As their adventure ensues, Beery and Mickey become close , but the past keeps haunting Beery, and making life difficult for him. An new Del Mar racetrack is the backgorund for the "BIG" race. You can even see the cumulo nimbus clouds in the background, before the area became saturated. 4 stars out of 5.
