WAR HORSE
IN CINEMAS JANUARY 13th

"THIS IS VINTAGE SPIELBERG: POWERFUL, COURAGEOUS AND HONEST"
Sunday Telegraph



WAR HORSE is a 2011 war drama film directed by Steven Spielberg and released in the United States on 25 December 2011[3] and in the United Kingdom on 13 January 2012.[4]
It is based on both War Horse, a children's novel set during World War I, by British author Michael Morpurgo, first published in the United Kingdom in 1982, and the 2007 stage adaptation of the same name.[5]




The cast includes David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Marsan, Toby Kebbell and Peter Mullan.[6][7] The film is produced by Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, and executive produced by Frank Marshall and Revel Guest.[8] Long term Spielberg collaborators Janusz Kamiński, Michael Kahn and John Williams all worked on the film.

  • warhorse is the best piece of theatre I have ever seen, mainly because of the horses. Every now and then I forgot that they weren't real, it was so perfectly done. Get tickets if you can. Anyone. 2 years ago 21



Gallipoli: WORLD WAR 1 1914 - 1918 
Between 25 APRIL 1915 and 9 JANUARY 1916
10 million people were killed in World War 1, we are not told how many horses were killed.


The gentleman who helped J Margaret Clarke (Turfcall) achieve bloodhorse literacy fought at Gallipoli and came home after. One of the best true bloodhorse literate horsemen that has ever walked on the face of this earth. His name was WILLIAM (Bill) PETTS he lived near Winchester

The place, Gallipoli peninsula the European part of Turkey,
Before Paul Roy (BHA Chairman) takes another step in the wrong direction he needs to accept that he is bloodhorse illiterate.



The author of WAR HORSE Michael Morpurgo   

Life and career of Michael Morpurgo

[edit] From teaching to writing

Morpurgo's first job was as a primary school teacher, in Kent. While he was teaching, in his late twenties, he discovered his talent for storytelling, stating "I could see there was magic in it for them, and realized there was magic in it for me." [6]
His writing career was inspired by Ted Hughes's Poetry in the Making, Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea.[7] Poets Seán Rafferty and Ted Hughes were influential in his career, with Hughes becoming a friend, mentor and neighbour.
In 2009, he donated the short story Look At Me, I Need a Smile to Oxfam's "Ox-Tales" project, four collections of UK stories written by 38 authors. Morpurgo's story was published in the "Water" collection.[8]
Morpurgo's work is noted for its "magical storytelling",[7] for recurring themes such as the triumph of an outsider or survival, for characters' relationships with nature, and for vivid settings such as the Cornish coast or World War I.


AS REFERENCED ABOVE
Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose
Plot summary
The Snow Goose is a simple, short written parable on the regenerative power of friendship and love, set against a backdrop of the horror of war. It documents the growth of a friendship between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse in the marshlands of wartime Essex because of his disabilities, and a young local girl, Fritha. The Snow Goose, symbolic of both Rhayader (Gallico) and the world itself, wounded by gunshot and many miles from home, is found by Fritha and, as the human friendship blossoms, the bird is nursed back to flight, and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years, as Fritha grows up. Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the British retreat from Dunkirk, having saved several hundred men. The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her (and realizes she had come to love him). Afterwards, a German pilot destroys Rhayader's lighthouse and all of his work, except for one portrait Fritha saves after his death: a painting of her as Rhayader first saw her—a child, with the wounded snow goose in her arms.
The book was a huge success in England where it remains popular with, and recommended for, readers of all ages.
