Audience Reviews for Miracle of the White Stallions


Beautiful horses and locations plus fine actors but it goes on too long. Robert Taylor's insistence on keeping that jet black hair as he aged led to an unfortunate resemblance to Count Dracula.

This is an exceptional live-action Walt Disney adventure-drama. The film works the family-oriented animal interest of the Lippizan horses into the framework of a dramatic and often suspenseful wartime adventure. One needn't be a horse-lover to be caught up in the story and end up caring about the animals which in this film are symbols of art, grace and beauty surviving a war-torn world. The audience is teased with glimpses of the stallions at play and in training and learns to appreciate their value so that the full-blown horse-show finale comes as a welcome joy.
