Product Overview

Kirk Douglas delivers outstanding performances in the duel role of a cattle baron and crusty old miner in this legendary western adventure set in the great Australian outback.

After making one fortune raising cattle, an ambitious rancher sets his sights on the hills of the awesome Snowy River country. Buried somewhere in that pristine wilderness, protected by treacherous terrain and bands of wild, stampeding horses, is another fortune--of unmined gold! Before the rancher can stake his claim, a young cowboy turns the rancher's world upside down, by stealing his daughter's heart and uncovering a secret in those hills more precious than any treasure.

Review I'll have to admit it: I was a teenaged horse fanatic. If a movie had nice horses in it, it would be sure to get at least some applause from me. However, my horse-loving days having receded into the distant past, I found that a film like The Man from Snowy River needed more than a strong equine supporting cast to make a favorable impression on me; it needed an entertaining story. In the final analysis, while the film isn't bad, the story and characters never quite grabbed me...Existing fans of the film will be generally satisfied with the transfer of the film; visually it looks great, although I was displeased with the audio quality. I probably would have liked this movie a lot more when I was thirteen years old and nuts about horses; seeing it as an adult, I found it rather bland. It's the kind of DVD that could be a great family film for viewers with kids, but I'd recommend renting it first to find out whether you like it well enough to add it to the collection.

Review It's corny in places, and kind of dumb, and its subplot about the romance between the boy and the girl seems plundered from some long-shelved Roddy McDowell script. But The Man from Snowy River has good qualities, too, including some great aerial photography of thundering herds of horses, and the invigorating grandeur of the Australian landscape...I also quickly tired of Douglas' grizzled old miner. Douglas is a great screen personality and often an effective actor, but he has a tendency to overact, and you're asking for trouble if you give him a beard, a pickax, a whiskey bottle and a wooden leg. The whole rivalry between the brothers is a set-up anyway, meaningless to the plot. Why not make the story more realistic, deal with the characters as people, and stop trying to get cute?
