My sister had given me Black Beauty on VHS and I must have watched that half a dozen times. It begins with Black Beauty in his final home, then shifts back to his birth and gentling. It was cute to see how oats helped him deal with the bit and girth. It does take place in England, as opposed to the NBC mini-series that took place in Maryland. In Black Beuaty, there is a voice for him, but not for the other horses. When he is sold to Squire Gordon he meets Ginger and Merrylegs, and is paired with Ginger to drive the carriage. When the squire's wife takes ill, Beauty and Ginger are sold, and so begins the many owners he has to deal with until in the end the grown-up Joe Green (the young lad who nearly killed him) gives him his last home. The Story of Seabiscuit stars Barry Fitzgerald, whom I take to be a real Irishman and Shirley Temple, who is not Irish. The subject is a small-sized, non-inspiring colt named Seabiscuit who catches Uncle Shawn's eye and, over initial objections, convinces his boss to keep him and let him train him for the racetrack. After a very unpromising start, the colt begins to win, and win, and win, and, in a match race against Sir Barton, shows the bigger horse his heels. A rags-to-riches story that ended with Shawn having the last laugh on the two who had written the little fellow off. National Velvet has been around for so long if you haven't seen it, you just don't watch horse movies. I loved the pairing of Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney, and the exciting running of the Grand National. International Velvet was such a superb sequel in my opinion I was put out by the lack of recognition it received.Read more ›

I bought this DVD for only one movie on the DVD. I have been looking for "International Velvet" on DVD for years and haven't been able to find it as I have the first "Velvet" movie and wanted the second. This was the only way to get it. I actually watched all four movies in succession and loved every one of them. It's good family fun with a bit of suspense thrown in. I actually enjoyed the whole thing, and though I usually like to buy my movies separately I enjoyed this group of movies immensely.

Format: DVD
With three classic releases that would appear on any tote board, it would be easy to call International Velvet a longshot which can be dismissed. But like Seabiscuit, getting past a quick initial glance will find a racer with the will of champion.

Released in 1978, director Bryan Forbes tackles the sequel to National Velvet with a keen eye on a compelling script. Nanette Newman (a grown-up Velvet)and Tatum O'Neal (her niece) are wonderful in their roles, with the storyline centering on the niece striving to become an Olympic-caliber rider.

Sir Anthony Hopkins portrays a veteran trainer who has seen many riders boast about such goals, but end up falling away when the going gets difficult. He has a special eye for talent, though, and there just may be unique potential with this young rider.

These are four movies which families can enjoy together, but the life lessons can be appreciated by adults, as much as children.

This has 4 great classic movies on two discs. National Velvet has been my favorite for years and it was nice to be able to buy it on DVD. The movie quality is better than my old VHS and you can stop and start it when you want. This is a great DVD for any horse lover!

What you see is what you get! 4 films, no special extras, but 4 old favourites at a reasonable price. Highly recommended to those who just want to watch the 4 films without any bells and whistles. A good choice of movies for the horse lover.

My family loves all stories and movies about horses, so we thought this collection would be perfect, but we were not as pleased with the full collection. The very best film in this collection is National Velvet, and in the last 6 months have watched it weekly as a family! It is a beautiful story with a strong, young girl protagonist that carries a wonderful message and has a beautiful setting and gorgeous horse scenes. Black Beauty is a quality story, but the film has some very uncomfortable scenes that involve the horses being mistreated, and there are quite a few very sad moments, so it is not an enjoyable movie for more sensitive people. Seabiscuit is more of a romance film between the human characters, taking place in a race-horse setting, so it is not really for horse lovers or for kids. Finally, most insulting to all of humanity, is the atrocity International Velvet. Do not bother trying to view this mockery of a horse-lover's film. It is absolutely not for youth, as much of the film revolves around adult situations, and includes a bit of violence and, as my son said after watching the first five minutes of a smoking, bare-chested Christopher Plummer talking about mature subjects with a self-absorbed, annoying supposed-adult version of Velvet, "creepiness." Sadly, this is intended to be a sequel to National Velvet, as one of the characters is an adult Velvet, however, she is so unlike the original youth, so unlikable, so much of the opposite that you would expect Velvet to become, that it is truly disturbing. As well, the film was made in the 1970's, and has the bland cinematography of that era, as opposed to the beautifully filmed National Velvet. Do your family a favor and watch National Velvet, try out Seabiscuit and Black Beauty, and TOSS International Velvet out the window.
