Mary O'Hara's popular novel "My Friend Flicka," a beloved, coming of age family classic about a rider's passionate connection with a wild horse — has enchanted children and adults for more than 70 years.
And now, the next chapter of the saga unfolds with "Flicka: Country Pride," the third installment of the contemporary film adaptations.
Back by popular demand, "Flicka: Country Pride" galloped on to Blu-ray and DVD on May 1 exclusively at Walmart, Sam's Club and Walmart.com, courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
A focus group of 180 movie-goers viewed the film during its Newport Beach Film Festival premiere at Triangle Square Cinemas in Costa Mesa on April 28.
"I was a little terrified at first," Director Michael Damian said with a sigh of relief after the premiere. "It's like giving birth, you know. It's our baby — we raise it, deliver it to the studio, and now today is the release — sharing it with the world."
