Pit Ponies take Hollywood!

Posted on

We've heard of pit ponies going underground, but what about going to Hollywood?
Today's #ThrowbackThursday takes us to the 1970s and the release of 'Escape from the Dark' (American title 'The Littlest Pit Pony') that was produced by Walt Disney Productions, filmed in Yorkshire and even featured real miners! Check out this Coal News article from 1975 for more details about filming.
These days, copies of the film are rare and very hard to find! Do you remember ever seeing this film, and even better, are you the owner of one of the rare copies?
