    Miracle of the White Stallions

    ★★★½

    Another surprise find in my ever-continuing Vault Disney initiative. Like Third Man on the Mountain, I was drawn in by a subject matter I know nothing about: the risk of the Spanish Riding School during World War II. At times, Miracle of the White Stallions is very much a talky vintage Disney movie, yet it is also a war movie, complete with a battle scene.

    My kids and I watched and they liked this by far

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
    If you are wise, you'll listen to me

    You will rewatch this as soon as you can
    And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
    Big Recommend!
