Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 4849 comments I did indeed add it, and I went to bed directly after doing so, which is also the reason for this late reply :)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 121 comments Just as a point of info, Wiki says: "Foote came to Hollywood in 1938 to work on the screenplay of his book _The Look of Eagles_, which was retitled "Kentucky", starred Loretta Young, and won an Academy Award for Walter Brennan."

From _The Look of Eagles_, by John Taintor Foote:
==============================================
"About the head of a truly great horse there is an air of freedom unconquerable. The eyes seem to look on heights beyond our gaze. It is the look of a spirit that can soar. ...It is the birthright of eagles."
===============================================
"The phrase, the look of eagles, has come to represent the proud, lofty spirit of the best Thoroughbreds in modern horse-racing."
