Midweek Movies: National Velvet

This week, we pay tribute to a classic Hollywood beauty, Elizabeth Taylor - the glamorous actress famous for her unique violet eyes.

National Velvet tells the story of Velvet Brown (Liz Taylor) who aspires to participate at a prestigious Grand National horse race with her gelding, “The Pie”. Mi Taylor (Mickey Rooney), a jaded young drifter, is forced into helping Velvet train her horse, despite his reservations.

This is actually a sports movie – but don’t let that put you off if you’re not into sports ;) It landed five Oscar nominations, including cinematography and art direction, and is regarded as a good family-oriented movie during the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Watch a scene from the National Velvet:
