Directed by Clarence Brown • 1944 • United States
Starring Mickey Rooney, Donald Crisp, Elizabeth Taylor
A twelve-year-old Elizabeth Taylor delivers a star-is-born performance in one of the most beloved films ever made about the bond between children and animals. She is the equine-obsessed Velvet Brown, who, after she wins a spirited steed in a raffle, works alongside a headstrong jockey (Mickey Rooney) to turn the “unbreakable” horse into a champion. The heavenly Technicolor cinematography adds to the nostalgic glow of this enduring family favorite.
