Jasper's Derby (1946)













Directed By:
Storyline
Jasper is outside playing his violin when an old racing horse hears the beautiful music. When Jasper played a more uptempo tune, the racing horse couldn't help but to gallop around the farm like he did in his younger days. The nostalgic feeling prompts Jasper to come up with the idea to play the uptempo tune during the next big race so the old racing horse can have a chance at being victorious again.

Where did you get such clean stills? I've looked, but have only been able to find really washed out videos.
