National Velvet ()

directed by
featuring Elizabeth Taylor, Mickey Rooney, Donald Crisp, Anne Revere, Angela Lansbury

Although National Velvet was the first starring role for 11-year-old Elizabeth Taylor, the early part of the film belongs to Mickey Rooney in the showier role of Mike Taylor, a headstrong English ex-jockey. Soured on life by a serious accident, Mike plans to steal from the country family that has taken him in, but his resolve is weakened by the kindness of young Velvet (Taylor). The two find a common bond in their love of horses. Velvet wins an "unbreakable" horse in a raffle, and enters the animal in the Grand National Sweepstakes. Though Mike is unable to ride the horse, he aids Velvet in her plan to disguise herself as a jockey; she wins the race...but the story isn't over quite yet. Co-starring as Velvet's mother is Anne Revere, who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance. National Velvet is based on the novel by Enid Bagnold. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

Great family movie!

by ANDREW C on Oct 14, 2010

Classic story, beautifully acted and photographed, of a girl whose dream is to win at the Nationals. Every child who loves horses should see it!
