National Velvet by Clarence Brown( Visual )

16 editions published between 1944 and 2010 in English and held by 2,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As long as young hearts endure, so will National Velvet and movies like it. In her starmaking role, Elizabeth Taylor plays Velvet Brown, a wide-eyed adolescent who, assisted by her jockey pal (Mickey Rooney), trains Pie, a horse she won in a raffle, for the Grand National Steeplechase. Of course, no girl can ride in the National, can she? Yet Velvet, posing as a boy, assuredly does. Superbly directed by Clarence Brown, this exciting winner of two Academy Awards (one to Anne Revere for her performance as Velvet's mother) co-stars a young Angela Lansbury and veteran Donald Crisp. Plus the film has an off-screen postscript as winning as the on-screen finale: the studio gave Pie to Taylor after filming wrapped."--Container

Expect things to be different at the Penrose dinner table. Ma insists everyone perform yogic deep breathing. Mr. Puddy, a boarder, has news of an edible beer bottle he's inventing. And little Lewie Penrose? He's been communicating with horses. "Butch" Jenkins, whose brief career as a child actor includes the earlier National Velvet, returns to the equine realm to play Lewie in this tale of a racetrack bettor eager to exploit the boy's gift and an older Penrose sibling (Peter Lawford) who looks out for Lewie's interests
