This Week, Tony Corey gets “Plugged In” to Disney’s latest Blockbuster Secretariat! The biographical film, starring Diane Lane and John Malkovich, chronicles the 1973 Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing champion. Find out why this racehorse film is taking the lead at the box-office!
Secretariat is more than a story about one of the greatest racehorses of all time; it’s the tale of a woman who nearly lost everything in her pursuit of greatness. Penny Chenery, Secretariat’s owner, is played by Diane Lane. “I felt very beholden to her,” Lane said, “She’s a very dynamic woman. She’s regal.”
Director Randall Wallace added, “My stories are about love. I want to know about what you love enough to sacrifice for, to fight for.” Even if you’re not a horse enthusiast or a history buff – Secretariat has something for everyone: heart.
