But an edited release is still better than no release. Let's hope that Disney doesn't do the same thing with Light in the Forest if it is ever released on DVD to the general public (as with Justin Morgan Had a Horse, an edited DVD is available from Disney Educational Products).

As mentioned above, Justin Morgan Had a Horsewas a made-for-TV movie, adapted from the Marguerite Henry book of the same name. That book, in turn, was inspired by the true story of the real Justin Morgan, a schoolteacher in Vermont in the 1790s who raised a small horse named Figure in the hopes of making an all-American breed of horse. Morgan’s quest, to be clear, is the premise of the movie. In the film as in life, he’s desperately hopeful that Figure would be seen as an attractive enough horse that other prospective owners would want Figure to sire other horses. (In short, and I apologize for being juvenile, this is a story about a guy who wants his horse to have sex a lot.) The Morgan horse, as Figure is known in the film, did become the source of a whole breed with origins in the United States, only a few years after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, thus ensuring our country’s independence. From the outside in, with decades removed from when this aired on television, it...
I’m trying to provide context here, both because Disney+ provides literally none for this film and because the film doesn’t do a great job of explaining itself. Justin Morgan Had a Horsefirst aired on NBC in February of 1972 over the span of two straight Sunday nights. And in an era well before TV supplanted film as an equally powerful medium through which to tell dramatically daring, bold stories, Justin Morgan Had a Horsevery much lookslike it was made for television. Its cast is comprised of a lot of actors you may have heard of, depending on your knowledge of older films — Don Murray, who plays the title character, may be best known for his Academy Award-nominated performance in the Marilyn Monroe drama Bus Stop— or your awareness of 60s- and 70s-era TV dramas on which they racked up guest appearances. It’s also worth noting that, unlike a number of Disney live-action films of the era, there aren’t any children in this film, and really few elements of comic relief that would app...
There is genuinely one reason why I wanted to watch this movie, and it’s the same reason I wanted to write about it: to answer the aforementioned question, “Why the hell is Justin Morgan Had a Horseon Disney+?” Before this streaming unit, Justin Morgan Had a Horsearguably didn’t have a legacy (unlike the actual man’s horse, and the legacy of horses he sired). This isn’t so obscure a title as to have never been released on home media before, granted; it was once given a Betamax release, and is even on DVD as part of something called the Disney Generations collection. (That sounds like the kind of packaging you might notice if you’re strolling through the knick-knacks sold at your local Cracker Barrel while waiting for your table to be ready.) But let’s be honest: few of you, reading this, knew what Justin Morgan Had a Horsewas before clicking the link to access this column. So why would Disney+ make thisavailable, and on its opening day? It’s even more baffling when you look at the n...

Justin Morgan became far more famous for the horse he owned than for the brilliant music he wrote. A little six-year-old horse he walked from Springfield, Mass., to Randolph, Vt., would father the first, famous American horse breed. That little horse has 175,000 descendants, known by the name of Morgan. Justin Morgan only owned his […]
