Storyline

The old peasant has three sons: the two elders, Danilo and Gavrilo, are considered smart, and the youngest, Ivan, is considered a fool. One day, a father sends his sons to find out who tramples the wheat at night. The older brothers decide to hide in a haystack where they quickly fall asleep. Meanwhile, Ivan sits under a birch and plays the pipe. Suddenly he sees a white mare with a long golden mane descend from the sky. Ivan manages to jump the mare on his back, and she starts to jump. Finally, tired, the mare asks Ivan to let her go and in return gives him two beautiful golden-maned horses and a Humpbacked Horse, who will be Ivan's best friend.

Childhood favorite
29 March 2009 | by jprheddSee all my reviews

This was my absolute favorite childhood movie which virtually disappeared from sight. Apparently the film master was in terrible shape and couldn't be restored at the time. I am talking about the Russian version which is the one I would have watched as a child so I suspect it had English dubbing as I would never have watched anything in Russian. The newer version is visually as appealing since it is made by the same folks but the character voices are jarring and all wrong. I would love to have the original but cannot locate it anywhere. The storyline and colors remain quite attractive to the average child as I managed to purchase the "American" version and showed it to some school-age children. They were quite enchanted. If you are searching for something new and different for your children, I would highly recommend this.
