Legends of the Fall

Have I done a post yet on Legends of the Fall? I think I might have mentioned it a time or two...

Either way, I'd like to take a moment to thank director Edward Zwick for putting together the drool fest, horse/ranch/cowboy orgy he named "Legends of the Fall".

I was 13 when this movie came out and I remember thinking that it had to be the BEST movie ever made! Brad Pitt and horses? And a beautiful ranch (filmed in Alberta, Canada btw) and a soundtrack to die for, and the tragically beautiful Julia Ormond! The costumes! The era! Oh and the story! *sigh*

I am the eternal and hopeless romantic!

I found this footage today while looking for a specific scene featuring a black horse I remembered from this movie (that I think looks a bit like this gelding I found for sale on dreamhorse.)

Thought you might enjoy it too.


  1. yeah, I think I need him (the horse in the dreamhorse ad). However, he's almost an entire month's take home pay. I don't think my husband will agree with moving and all coming up.

    I loved Legends of the Fall. It's been one of my favorite movies for what seems like forever!

    And you were only 13!!! I feel so OLD! Thanks for that, Chelsi! I love you too! :P

  2. *sigh* yeah, a good movie for sure. I remember the first time I saw Brad Pitt in a movie. He was a nobody then. It was Thelma & Louise. I rember sitting up real straight in the chair and proclaimed quite loudly "Who is that!!??" Damn!! the boy was too cute for words! I'm telling ya, it was a moment I still remember quite fondly.
    You were 13? You're still a baby!! There's a lot of good times ahead for you girl - enjoy every one of them. :)
    The only time I feel old is when something hurts. Otherwise, this feeling old stuff is hogwash!! Age is truly just a number...or a mindset.

  3. C-ingspots- I ALWAYS hurt. So, in this case, age does make a difference. Btw, I'm really not too much older than Chelsi. But, comparatively as to what I was doing with my life when Legends of the Fall came out, (I was married and had a baby), it feels like I'm light years older.

  4. That movie and A River Runs Through It are just so beautifully made. Tragic, but beautiful.

  5. I love that movie, too! My college roommate and I bawled like babies during that movie when we saw it at the theater. I just watched it again last summer (I have it on VHS) and loved it more now that I'm back into horses. It has such beautiful cinematography!

  6. Sigh...as you have already said, what is not to like about handsome men, gorgeous horses, and beautiful scenery???

    You KNOW that I am a hopeless romantic...lol!!!!
