Secretariat Movie Opens Today

Diane Lane
"In that golden span of great sports from the mid-'60s to the mid-'70s, Muhammad Ali was king, but Secretariat was a contender for the throne of sports majesty. He even out-Springsteened Springsteen, landing on the covers of Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated." -- Clint O’Connor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Secretariat, the movie, opens today for wide release today.  Being in the horse biz, knowing Penny Chenery (Big Red's owner who is portrayed by Diane Lane in the film) and having seen Secretariat in person at Claiborne Farm, we simply must put all the power of T.A.H. Worldwide Media behind a push for box office success.

The fact that he is simply the greatest athlete ever produced by the Commonwealth of Virginia is reason alone to trump both the real and digital versions of his amazing Triple Crown accomplishment. 

We have seen the movie multiple times and written two reviews you can read by clicking here and here.

We also told director Randall Wallace, following a screening in Georgetown, that we believed he had accomplished a nice piece of filmaking by extracting an emotional reaction from folks who already knew the outcome of the events.  So much for spoilers...

Here are some reviews, you might also enjoy.

Ann Hornaday, click here.

Yeah, you know how it ends, but go see it anyway.
