Burlinson and Sinatra Retrospective

Phar Lap

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 19 August 2016

To celebrate Tom Burlinson performing the classic live album Sinatra at the Sands at Riverside on 10 September in honour of Sinatra’s 100th birthday, we are screening a retrospective of a number of Burlinson and Sinatra films.

Tommy (Tom Burlinson) works as a stable boy for horse trainer Harry Telford (Martin Vaughan). Telford takes a risk in leasing a gaunt horse named Phar Lap from his boss, Dave Davis (Ron Leibman), entrusting care of the animal to Tommy. But when Phar Lap begins an unexpected winning spree, Telford must fend off pressure from other racers and disgruntled gamblers — not to mention the boss and his wife (Judy Morris), who have both taken a keen interest in the horse and its earning potential.
