Based on a play which was based on Michael Morpurgo's children's book, War Horse was inspired by World War I veterans telling Morpurgo the stories of the close bond between man and horse in the trenches and in battle, where the lives of each depended on the other.
The film War Horse was nominated for six Oscars, including a nomination for Best Original Score by composer and conductor John Williams.
Learn more about the film and hear its music on this week's Flicks in Five with Lynne Warfel.
