The Story of Seabiscuit Review


While the 2003 Seabiscuit has its share of factual license, it can't hold a candle to the utterly contrived The Story of Seabiscuit, a mere Shirley Temple love story set against the backdrop of the (at the time) recent success of Seabiscuit in the thoroughbred horse racing world. The only actual reason to watch this film -- which has Temple and her dad coming over from Ireland in order to train the horse and lead him to victory -- is the black and white footage of Seabiscuit's actual races, incorporated into the film. It's the only genuine part of the movie, and the only part worth watching.
