First off this is my first post!! Great forum I been trolling and seen all the insight shared by great people.

I wanted to discuss and see if anyone knew of any good movies that show pigeons in them? I just watched Robin Hood in the theater and was very happy they showed pigeons being used to send messages. Although a small part I was excited. I also enjoy the movie The Lost Battalion. I think pigeons being such a huge part in history they would be depicted in more movies. I have even noticed they are missing in most museums as well. I'm in the military and hardly ever seen anything about the history and use of pigeons. Very upsetting! Does anyone know of any other movies pigeons are in?

Hello

I hope you mean "lurking" not "trolling" lol

Don't know if there are any pigeons with main roles in films but I often look at the pigeons in the background in crowd scenes, and wonder if they are wild ones, or whether they are pets being used in a studio.

Welcome to PT, "trolling" is OK too - in a "fishing" sense ;)
I don't know of any movies, but here is a web site that might interest you :)

Obviously you haven't watched any kiddy movies lately. ;)

If you want a pigeon packed movie based on true events (and has a whole lot of laughs also) then watch 'Valiant'. Brilliant movie, great for all ages. It's about time they released somthing about our feathered companions and their bravery. :D

In the mean time here's some links to get you interested...

Hey Scotty lol thanks for lurking lol and trolling, and welcome. I did the same for quite a few months before I finally weighed in. I was sick and tired of not being able to see pics people posted so I finally caved in and joined lol.

I would LOVE to watch the movies if you all can assure me that they are not sad or scary. I'll wait for answers. If pigeons die or any animal dies I cannot watch them. So I will wait for confirmation for now thank guys and gals.

I know a few movies with pigeons IN them but not really the main character. Valiant is a good one especially if you are military. I've seen pigeons in the films On The Waterfront with Marlon Brando... Ghost Dog with Forest Whitaker...then of course movies like training day and Friday. There's a pigeons on YouTube thread you can check out too. I'll have to check out some of the movies others have posted too because I haven't seen them.

Hey just wanted to say I'm bummed that Game of Thrones used ravens as message carriers instead of pigeons. To my knowledge, Ravens have never been message carriers, only pigeons. It a little annoying that HBO must have felt pigeons were too uncool to show them doing useful and heroic stuff they did for centuries.

I suspect Scotty has trolled off somewhere after 5 years :)

There's one little scene in that notable epic "Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies" where Abe and his special agents are conferring out on the prairie and a few (feral?) pigeons amble past in the background. Hmmm ... dubious.

But forreal check out Racing Hearts. I don't know if a lot of people have seen it because I myself only heard of it yesterday from a guy at work who knows I have pigeons...
Basically without giving away too much it's about this man who works for a big financing company in New York. His next big deal is to get a rich Arab sheik to go with his company instead of their competitor. And the only way the Arab will do it is if he obtains this champion racing pigeon from this guy in Belgium....
SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!
also known by the title Flying Home or Racing Hearts. Available at redbox.

++++ 1 !!

Great Homing Pigeon Movie. Its out on Redbox. Moving story and they incorporated the legendary WW I Cher Ami true story in it.
Racing Hearts (U.S. Release) or Flying Home (Some European countries release). Shot too in the pigeon capital of the world... Belgium
