Product Overview

A young boy is determined to befriend a rebellious horse in this touching family film based on the celebrated novel by Mary O'Hara.

Ten-year-old Ken McLaughlin (Roddy McDowall), who lives on the Goose Bar Ranch, desperately wants a colt of his own. Frustrated by the boy's constant daydreaming, Ken's father (Preston Foster) finally lets him choose any horse in the herd. Ken picks a beautiful filly whom he names Flicka, but the high-spirited animal comes from a bad bloodline that's considered to be hopelessly wild. To prove Flicka is worth keeping, and prove himself as a person, Ken sets his heart on winning the horse's confidence and ultimately taming her. Along the way, ken begins to grow up a little and everyone learns some important lessons, in this poignant tale of love, patience, faith, and hope beyond hope.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review My Friend Flicka is one of the quintessential boy-and-his-animal-companion films. The story is a timeless one and is conveyed in the film with warmth and conviction. There is no really strong antagonist, yet the film maintains an effective dramatic arc by telling the story from Ken's point of view and successfully blending the setbacks in Flicka's progress with the family's own setbacks in running a successful ranch in wartime...Even the most jaundiced watcher of boy-and-his-pet films should find the simplicity and sincerity of My Friend Flicka appealing. This is truly a family film that inspires and entertains without being cutesy or syrupy.
