Two children train a sorrel gelding, won in a village raffle, to win the Grand National. This is a charmer for boys and girls of all ages, with a captivating performance from the young Liz Taylor as Velvet, the butcher's daughter, and graceful, fluent direction by Clarence Brown. The National was actually filmed on a Pasadena golf course. (From the novel by Enid Bagnol.) TCh.
