Movie Info

The Littlest Horse Thieves is a Walt Disney Production. Set in early 20th-century England, the film concerns three Yorkshire children who take pity on the ponies that are used as beasts of burden in the coal mines. The kids "liberate" the ponies with the help of a sympathetic groom. This action arouses so much public sympathy that the miners threaten to strike if the ponies are returned to their living deaths in the pits. A plot-solving last minute rescue segues into a joyous celebration, stage-managed by twinkly old Lord Harrogate (played by the indispensable Alastair Sim).

Audience Reviews for The Littlest Horse Thieves


[color=yellow]Hang 'Em High (1968, Ted Post) **½[/color] [color=white]American attempt at a spaghetti western. The music works most of the time, and the film does have its moments, especially the beginning. However, much too long, mainly to blame a contrived romantic subplot.[/color] [color=yellow]The Littlest Horse Thieves (1977, Charles Jarrott) ***[/color] [color=white]Disney production filmed entirely in the UK. Vivid period atmosphere, set in a small English colliery town (coal mining) in the early 20th century. [/color] [color=yellow]I, A Woman (1965, Mac Ahlberg) **[/color] [color=white]Very early example of erotica, originally imported to the US by Radley Metzger. Flashbacks hard to distinguish from reality. Really nothing more than episodic melodrama. DVD transfer horrid. [/color] [center][color=yellow][img][/img][/color][/center] [color=yellow][/color] [color=yellow]Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne (1944, Robert Bresson) ***[/color] [color=white]Second Bresson film this week, not nearly as good as Diary of a Country Priest, this one more talky. I was confused as to motivations through a good part of the film, but all is revealed in the last 10 minutes, and I was a little surprised.[/color]
