    Synopsis


    The Man from Snowy River
    Inspired by an epic poem by A.B. "Banjo" Patterson, The Man From Snowy River was a major step forward for the regenerated Australian film industry of the early '80s. This "down-under Western" spotlights Tom Burlinson as Jim Craig, a headstrong young man who goes to work for a powerful cattle baron. Burlinson falls in love with Jessica (Sigrid Thornton), his boss' daughter, and becomes enmeshed in a bitter land feud. Kirk Douglas has a high old time in the dual role of hard-hearted landowner Harrison and grizzled, one-legged old prospector Spur. Previously filmed in 1920, The Man From Snowy River was directed by the other George Miller, not the director of the same name who helmed Mad Max (1979). A monumental moneymaker, the film inspired a 1988 sequel, confusingly titled Return to Snowy River, Part II. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Bought for my wife to upgrade from the previous DVD that we had. The Blu Ray has nice picture quality and fits in well with our library of films. This is very entertaining to watch again every couple years.

      I purchased this DVD as a gift for my mother. Actor Kirk Douglas, the soundtrack, and the cinematography are what make this film great. The good price and quick free shipping made this a great purchase.

      This is one of those westerns that i find to be a little overrated. Just a pretty mediocre film.

      The story line is great.. Hard working folks have things work out, even with a little struggle. The horsemanship in this movie is amazing to see.

      This is kind of an oldie but a goodie! If you love horses, mountains and a love story/adventure, this is a must see.
