national velvet

Any horse-crazy young girl knows the story of the piebald long shot that wins the Grand National Steeplechase. A 12-year old Elizabeth Taylor stars as Velvet, a young girl determined to race her horse in the biggest of all races. When no other jockey is available, Velvet breaks the rules and races herself. Also starring Mickey Rooney as her trainer, and Angela Landsbury as her boy-crazed older sister. A must see for those in the horse-obsessed years. [us, 1944]
