Editorial Reviews

This heartwarming adaptation of the timeless novel tells the story of the courageous stallion Black Beauty, a well-bred horse in 19th century England. Black Beauty is happy and contented as a country carriage horse, living with a wealthy Squire and his children Polly and Bertie. But when Mr. Filcher, their evil stable hand, steals Black Beauty and takes him to work in the coal mines, it s up to Polly and Bertie to rescue their beloved horse and bring him home again. Based on the 1877 classic tale by Alice Sewell, this fully-animated feature will entertain and thrill the entire family.

I had the video when I was a kid and a few years ago, I found it at Wal-Mart along with "The Wind and the Willows" and "Alice in Wonderland" done by the same company and I grew up with those as well.

Anyways, this version was beautifully done. I've read some of the book and seen another adaption by Hanna-Barbera which was more faithful to the book, to my surprise it's actually a rather depressing story about the biography of a horse. Almost like "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron" only not as action-y and fun also set in 19th century England instead of the American West.
But this adaption is working through it, giving it not only an entertaining plot about courage and loyalty but also a colorful cast of supporting characters and a dork of a main antagonist also a nasty supporting villain.
I positively recommend this adaption to anyone who loves horses and knows or doesn't know the story of "Black Beauty".

I remember watching this as a child and loving it. So when I saw it here, I had to get it and it was good. A child will like and so will adults who remember seeing it as a child. Now if you think it's totally based upon the book, it isn't, only a few parts are.

Other than that it's nice and all the horses are happy.
