A half-wolf, half-husky named Balto gets a chance to become a hero when an outbreak of diphtheria threatens the children of Nome, Alaska in the winter of 1925. He leads a dog team on a 600-mile trip across the Alaskan wilderness to get medical supplies. The film is based on a true story which inspired the Iditarod dog sled race.Written by

In the very beginning of the movie when Steele is racing the other team, a couple shots show that Star's tongue is blue, but a few shots later in the same scene, his tongue is pink, and remains that color for the rest of the movie. See more »
It was here... someplace.
But we've already been past here!
Heh. The trees have grown so big. It's been so long since my last visit.
[walks and sighs happily and Blaze was barking]
Come on Blaze. Grandma, when was the last time you were here?
Heh. Years and years ago. Way before you were born, sweetheart.

A great movie! One that will live in your memory forever!
This is a great children's movie. But, being a kid's movie doesn't mean that it isn't good for others. This film entertains audiences of all ages. I first saw this movie when I was seven. And to this day, I still love it. Kevin Bacon supplies the voice of Balto, a half-bred wolf who risks his life to travel in the cold of Alaska to retrieve a sled of dogs that were lost while bringing antibiodics back to the town of Nome to stop an epidemic. BALTO is a film to see on a cold, Sunday when you have nothing better to do. You will enjoy this film greatly. After viewing it once, you will want to see it again. I lost track of how many times I have seen this film. But it has been more than thirty times. See this movie. It's well worth seeing. This one is one that I am proud to have in my video collection.....5/5.
