Product Description

Product Description

With its unforgettably heroic story, its stunning cinematography, and acting performances that are uniformly excellent, THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER is one thrilling adventure you won't want to miss. Set during the 1880's, when the Australian frontier was as wild and dangerous as the American West, the film follows the exploits of a handsome youth (Tom Burlinson) who sets out to tame a wild herd of horses. Taking on a challenge many men had attempted before him, he rides deep into the treacherous and untamed wilderness of his native timberlands where boys become men fast - or die trying. Featuring Kirk Douglas in a remakable dual role and highlighted by a climactic chase involving 40 horsemen and 90 wild stallioins thundering across snow-covered peaks, THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER is destined to become a legendary film!

A conventional boy-and-his-horse story set against the red rocks of remote Australian mountains. (If there's a wide-screen edition, grab it. The scenery is one of the movie's strongest features.) Tom Burlinson is Jim Craig, a young man left stranded after his father's death who is struggling to save the family farm. He proves his manhood during a hair-raising hunt over the wooded slopes in search of an escaped stallion. The great, grizzled, Australian character actor Jack Thompson (the idealistic lawyer in Breaker Morant) is the tough, older horseman who takes the lad under his wing. The director, George Miller (not to be confused with the action-master who made the Mad Max films) allows costar Kirk Douglas to mug and grimace and prance far too much in a duel role as a pair of lovable old coots who hate each other's guts. Luckily, one of the coots has a handsome daughter (Sigrid Thornton, an Elizabeth McGovern-type with grit), who also has a way with horses. So it isn't all rocks and pine trees. --David Chute --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I am quite sure you'll have seen the movie elsewhere, before you consider buying it on Blu Ray. And one of the big reasons we lay out the cash to buy it on Blu Ray is because we like a super clear picture and great audio to boot.

I was disappointed to find out that this great old movie had poor Blu Ray rendering on quite a few sections. I would estimate perhaps some 30% of the movie has a grainy fuzziness that took away from the pure visceral enjoyment because the fuzzy scenes would appear in rude contrast to the good stuff. I found the audio far less obvious, and so perhaps 10% of that was mismatched.

For technical comparisons, I watch on higher end audio visual equipment all up to date and capable of superb output. Watching something like the Bourne Trilogy on this setup is just riveting, and while I really like the characters (etc) of the Snowy River movie, I would liken its quality to more like a good DVD.

I am glad I have it, and its not worth the effort to send it back. My true wish is that they will do a better job of the rendering (visually) and I would buy the better copy (and the sequel!). My rating is actually 3.5 stars, but that option doesn't exist here.

I was only nine years old when this movie came out, and I have loved it ever since I first saw it in the theater. I am a horse lover and rider myself, and so I'm sure that's a big part of why this movie is one of my favorites, but I think even people who have never even been around horses can appreciate it. The acting is excellent, and the scenes with the horses galloping across the gorgeous Australian countryside, are wonderful. One of my favorite things about it is the music. The music is some of the most beautiful I've ever heard. The soundtrack is definitely one of the highlights of the film. And of course, I can't forget one of the most incredible scenes I've ever seen in any horse movie, which is where Tom Burlinson gallops his horse down an unbelievably steep mountainside. My family and I have always wondered if this was actually done by a stunt rider, or if it involved trick photography. Either way, it is a very impressive scene, and will leave you in complete awe. This will always be on my list of all-time favorite films, and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the Western-type genre, or anyone who loves horses.

...all, cinematic and character delights - as you will find "THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER"...
Technically a "10", this Aussie (and World) classic, may leave you none-the-less breathless. George Miller's direction, Cull Cullen's script (enhanced by John Dixon and David Bradshaw's, "A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson", whose original poem is the essense of the film), Keith Wagstaff's absolutely stunning cinematography and Bruce Rowland's original and heart-tugging music (particularly, the piano solo, "Jessica's Theme") may bring tears to your eyes with this simple, Down-Under western plot -- but it took a world-class editor like Adrian Carr to put this gorgeous film into the top ranks of movie-watchers the globe over. Carr's timing of Wagstaff's photography and Rowland's music is the stuff legends are made of...just, dare I say it, "Professional Grade"(!)
It didn't hurt to have a made-to-order cast. Burlinson is quietly, and wonderfully, cast as the young male hero, "Jim Craig." Kirk Douglas hasn't played a better role - and, as a double. Terence Donovan played the quietly strong, short-lived role as Burlinson's father, "Henry." Sigrid Thornton was exemplary and believable as Tom's love interest, "Jessica" (the woman is beautiful) and the venerable Jack Thompson was magnificent as "Clancy" - the range-wise, "horse-magician" glue that holds the whole film together.
The subtle British humour Americans are so used to is sometimes raucous in the film - more the better from Chris Haywood's
"Curly" (..."Ah'm studyin' to be Supavisa!").

Format: DVD
This is a good example of a "family" film that doesn't play down to any member of the audience. It also takes the Western in an interesting direction by moving the setting to Australia (it's based on a poem by an Australian poet). The dramatics are sometimes creaky, especially the twist that most viewers, even the young 'uns, will see coming from miles away, but the absolutely gorgeous photography makes up for it. The scenes of stampeding horses and the wranglers chasing them are literally breathtaking, and the widescreen transfers captures is all. Kirk Douglas is also excellent in his dual role and brings and American earthiness to the production.
This DVD features an excellent sound mix. Although not in 5.1, the Dolby Surround is crisp and lush for a back catalog film that otherwise has no special features on it at all. Bruce Rowalnd's wonderful score certainly deserves this deluxe treatment. And at this price, how can you resist the appeal of The Man from Snowy River?
