National Velvet


Watch National Velvet (1945)

When Velvet Brown, an equine-loving 12-year-old living in rural Sussex, becomes the owner of a rambunctious horse, she decides to train it for England's Grand National race. Aided by former jockey Mi Taylor and encouraged by her family, the determined Velvet gets her steed, affectionately called "The Pie," ready for the big day. However, a last-minute problem arises with the jockey and an unexpected rider must step in as a replacement.

In my opinion National Velvet is one of the most impressive films. I really recommend to see and put National Velvet on the list of the best films, because National Velvet certainly deserve it. I will tell you something. I ended up watching it four times whole movie online in the web, almost without breaks. However, this genre may boast of one of the larger number of popular titles. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Clarence Brown's films play on emotions and are able to move a more sensitive viewer. National Velvet is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.... Show more
