Oooh, there is a 1943 Flicka version? I have to research!
The new version, actually I have seen it.
Let me resume what I have seen although it's such a big mumbo jumbo in my head so please excuse me if I dont remember correctly which movie had what name. However , SPOILER ALLERT
- an arabian girl finds a wild black stallion in the desert, tames it by the power of her soul and even wins a race in the end. Beautiful movie, horrible cheesy scenario, didnt like it. Except maybe Ali Al-Ameri's appearance :)
- a cowboy brings his QH / mustang / not sure what breed was it actually to an arabian famous race, he wins it after getting in lots of trouble and his horse is also wounded in the desert - I guess it's Hidalgo? Again beautiful horses, perhaps a bit less cheesy :)
- the only version of Flicka I have seen is about a young rebellious mare, a young rebellious girl, the greedy negative character who wants to buy her, the father who is rough but loyal and fair, some sort of rodeo event, Flicka runs free with the girl, they bump into a cougar (or what was it), happy end after some emotional moments.
I am sure I would have appreciated this movie a lot in the correct time, however I've seen it at...25 years and um, again, beautiful horse, not much of a movie. I'll look for the old version that you guys recommended
- Black Beauty. I have not seen yet the movie based on the novel. I have only seen when I was a kid some TV series where yes, Black Beauty was gorgeous, but he was Lassie + Captain Planet + White Fang + Ninja Turtles all in one. He was saving his owners from incredible situations each episode.
I was a huge fan at 8 yo, doubt I'd have the patience to review it now :)
I searched for the movie SR recommended, have not found it yet :/ I'll keep looking, I looked on IMDB and the reviews were encouraging as well
