Rent National Velvet on DVD

National Velvet

1944 Rated G 2hr 4m

Although it's a vintage flick resurrected from Hollywood's vaults, National Velvet is first-rate entertainment. Among its highlights are a young and beguiling Elizabeth Taylor as the horse-crazy Velvet Brown; Mickey Rooney as the peripatetic lad who coaches her to greatness; and a thrilling race finale as Taylor and her horse go undercover to compete in England's famed Grand National Steeplechase race!
