National Velvet Review


Very Good
A young Liz Taylor, standing eye to eye with an adult Mickey Rooney, stars in this classic children's fable at a girl and her horse, named The Pi. Rooney is a down-on-his-luck ex-jockey who encounters the Brown family, working as a general servant but taking to young Velvet (Taylor) when she comes into the ownership of a wild gelding. On sheer determination, she enters The Pi into the Grand National steeplechase, a grueling horse race in which she eventually rides herself (scandal!). Great fun for the youngsters among you, but I don't know how much "sheer determination" us adults can stand at once.
