The trailer for this week’s throwback Thursday is for Joe Johnston’s 2004 film, “Hidalgo”, starring Viggo Mortensen, Omar Sharif, Zuleikha Robinson, Louise Lombard, and Saïd Taghmaoui. This redemptive adventure story brings to life the legend of American cowboy Frank Hopkins and his mustang Hidalgo, who he takes overseas to Arabia to pit against pure-blooded Arabian horses raced by Bedouins. Hidalgo might not have been lauded with awards or anything, but it did inspire in me a riotous desire to ride a horse through the sandy desert 🙂 .
