how much I love this movie! I remember being about 5 when I got this movie for a birthday present. I can remember it exactly. I also became obsessed with this movie from that day on. The reasons why I love this movie have definitely changed throughout the years.
When I first got it, I just loved it because of the action, beauty, and the horses. Later on, I just thought Jim was cute and I wanted to be Jessica;0)
As I got older, I still loved the movie, and then I loved it because of the music. One of the songs from this soundtrack (where you can listen to samples of here) was called "Jessica's Theme". I loved this song so much, I got the music and learned/memorized how to play it. It's still one of my all time favorite songs to play.
Now, as an woman, I love it because in this movie the main character portrays the kind of man that I want my husband to be. In this movie, Jim Craig is a man who is strong and a complete gentleman; however, he is not afraid to fight for what is his. He is a hard worker and passionate about the things that he loves. He believes in duty, love, and respect. He is funny and makes other people laugh and has a beautiful smile. Most of all he is proud of who he is and never tries to be anyone else...he is real. Plus he is an amazing rider and pretty darn cute! ;0) These are only some of the reasons why I am attracted to his character. If you haven't seen this movie, I implore you to watch it. You'll love it (if you like westerns, horses, etc)! If you don't, there is something seriously wrong with you :0) Also check out the sequal, "The Man from Snowy River Returns."Also amazing..you won't be able to watch the first one and not the second!
There is one thing that has not changed through the years though...I would still love to be Jessica Harrison! I am also still searching for my "Jim"...and believe me..one day I will find him~
