60th Anniversary
After 60 years, this film has both an enduring and endearing quality. A wholesome film for every member of the family, a great introduction to equestrian arts and sciences, to say nothing of a showcase for the incomparable Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor.

Enid Bagnold wrote a great story. The only thing is -- what happened to Meredith? According to the printed page, Velvet had one brother, Donald, of course, and THREE sisters, Malvolia, Meredith, and of course, Edwina. The film depicts three Brown girls, Velvet, Malvolia, and Edwina. (Don't even go to that television program -- there was just Edwina and Velvet).

Well, you can't have everything, I guess.

Happy 60th Anniversary, National Velvet.
