National Velvet

A young Elizabeth Taylor stars as 14-year-old horse-fanatic Velvet Brown in this Technicolor family classic. Coming into possession of a supposedly untrainable steed, Velvet enlists a bitter ex-jockey (Mickey Rooney) in a plan to race the horse in England's Grand National Sweepstakes—with her in the saddle.
