In the book, Pilgrim is dark bay, rather than chestnut, and a Morgan horse. Gulliver (Judith's horse) is the chestnut. See more »
In an early scene, a phone call is placed from Manhattan to the suburbs. The audible touch-tone sequence is seven digits. Since the NYC metro area has many area codes, ten-digit dialing is mandatory there. See more »
Redford and the entire cast is excellent. The music and scenery is excellent. Saw this movie for the first time three years ago. I rented it due to the "horse" plot and it ended up being a very important movie in my life. I was involved in some very personal problems with my family at the time. What was important to me was that even with the terrible situation Grace was in, there was a way to heal. The most important line in the movie was when Tom Booker makes the comment: "Knowing it is the easy part, saying it out loud is what's difficult" Oh how true this is. A lot of good thoughts in this one. It has my highest recommendation.
