Superb acting and a heartwarming story make The Long Shot just as enjoyable today as it did in nineteen thirty nine when it became a wildly successful at the box office. Amidst angst, strife, and downright maliciousness, thoroughbred racehorse trainers played by the stellar Gordon Jones and Marsha Hunt are determined to enter their prize horse in the Santa Anita handicap horserace. Against all odds, and against the persistent urgings of the mob, the horse will get his shot at winning the race. Capitalizing on the success of true story underdog horseracing champion Seabiscuit, The Long Shot is a marvelous feel good film that should be savored by all.
