Insignia Films Storytelling that Sheds Light on the Human Condition

Seabiscuit
In 1938, as America was reeling from the Great Depression, a stocky, dung-colored, knobby-kneed racehorse named Seabiscuit captured the nation’s attention and its heart. Columnist Walter Winchell named the horse one of the year’s top ten newsmakers, alongside Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Adolph Hitler. Tens of thousands of people across the nation flocked to his races, or sat glued to the radio whenever he ran. Meanwhile, his beloved equine image adorned everything from ladies’ hats to orange crates to board games. Seabiscuit, Insignia Films’ Primetime Emmy award-winning, sixty-minute documentary for the PBS series American Experience, tells the story of the unlikely champion who became America’s hero, and of the men who nurtured his potential and drove him to superstardom.
