Product Description

Every year the Chincoteague fire department rounds up the wild ponies of Assateague. island, and then auctions off the colts and yearlings to thin out the herd. A young brother and sister, Paul and Maureen Beebe, have set their hearts on owning one particular wild three-year old pony, The Phantom. Only they have to earn the money, the Phantom has to be captured in the roundup (which she never has), and then they have to outbid everyone else for her in the auction. And even the Phantom herself has a surprise for Paul and Maureen: a foal named Misty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Faithful to the Book Aug. 3 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Shot on location on Chincoteague and Assateague Island, this movie wisely sticks to the original souce material. Misty fans of all ages will want to see this movie so they can see the places mentioned in the book and watch a real Pony Penning Day roundup.
Both the book and movie characters were based on real people (and ponies). Misty was an equine celebrity with children all over America. After a storm nearly destroyed Chincoteague, the real Misty often appeared in theaters where this film was shown to raise money to rebuild the island.
Arthur O'Connell as Grandpa Beebe was a disappointment. He doesn't speak in the warm, grizzled ways like the character in the book and he doesn't even have a Southern accent.
The film was shot in CinamaScope and the video is formatted in pan-and-scan. There are many instances during the film where the cropped picture looks distorted because of this. If you really want to enjoy the beauty of this film, hold out for a widescreen version on DVD. It would be nice if future editions of this film also had a documentary about the real Misty and her life.

I have had the pleasure of reading the novel by Margurite Henry, Misty of Chincoteague to my first graders for several years. The novel itself is wonderful and gives a beautiful picture of life on the VA eastern shore. The video brings imagination to life. Yes it is a bit dated but all of my children love this movie and never notice the lack of computer generated graphics.
Note: This video has been unavailible for many years and I have had to use a very old library copy. Hooray for Disney for re-releasing it and for Amazon for offering it to the world!! Now many more children will get a chance to know this story and read the book and possibly head to "Pony Penning Day" Patty in VA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misty of Chincoteague Aug. 8 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great story of two children's love of a horse. It is refreshing to be able to watch a movie that is rated G and is also is interesting for adults, too. The scenery in the movie is spectacular, filmed on Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. It's a very touching story, and will hold your interest to the end! A real classic!

I have searched everywhere for this movie! My fourth graders read it as a chapter book.We had fun comparing the book to the movie.It is dated but still takes the class to Va.
