Product description

Product Description

Young Velvet Brown (Elizabeth Taylor in the role that made her a star) wins a horse, christens it Pie and determines to enter it for the Grand National. She trains Pie from her Sussex home with the help of friend Mi Taylor (Mickey Rooney), but needs the assistance of her mother (Anne Revere) when funds start to run dry. The climactic race was actually filmed on a Pasadena golf course.

I am 9 years old and I love this movie more than any other one. It is interesting to watch. It was exciting to see what Velvet had to do to be part of the Grand National. She was very brave to jump on a horse as wild as Pie and compete in the fastest, hardest and longest horse race in that time. It was strange to see that a girl had to pretend to be a boy to compete. If you love horses you will love this movie.

This review will relate to the DVD which I believe is just the same as VHS.

This film is super rare on Video but does not exist on DVD UK encoding if you own a multi region machine you can by the U.S. version which is just the same film but made for the U.S. region.

I am not a fan of old films there are few I will watch but most will make turn off this film is one I will watch.

If you ride yourself or you just like horses this film will delight you. This film does show its age with the rule that females weren't allowed to race at the National at one time.

This film is a great buy and I urge you to buy this film now or run the risk of never getting a copy as even as you read this it is getting even more rare than you can believe so stop reading and buy it NOW!
