"The International Equestrian Shop"
Shirley Temple, Barry Fitzgerald and Lon McCallister.
Legs short, Running style inefficient. Heart unequaled. Sixteen times out of the starting gate and zero times in the winners circle. Those were the humble beginnings of the undersized, underdog bay colt who became one of the greatest thoroughbreds in racing history. With actual racing footage of " The Biscuit" The Story of Seabiscuit mixes fact with fancy into an memorable tale of rags to riches success. Shirley Temple plays the student nurse whose romance with the colt's jockey ( Lon McCallister) is clouded by her fears about a sport in which a 100 pound rider must command a 1000 pounds of thundering horseflesh. Barry Fitzgerald charmingly scores as the trainers who sizes up the short legged, bulky kneed colt and sees what no-one else sees, the making of a champion.
