Adding insult to injury, the filmmakers made precious little attempt to match the various horses who portrayed Beauty throughout the years. Different shades, different builds, and even completely different breeds were used interchangeably. To a horse-lover, this is on par with a director casting Jack Nicholson, Jackie Chan, and Jacqueline Bisset in the same role and expecting the audience not to notice. The only constant was the extremely shoddy-looking fake star painted on the horse's forehead.

Growing up, one of my favorite movies was Black Beauty. Even now, the music (composed by Danny Elfman) is still one of my favorite movie scores. The soundtrack is impossible to find for some reason, but if you can find it I highly recommend it.
Anyway, the 1994 version is so much better, and the music done by Danny Elfman is, in my opinion, some of his best work. It's a heart-warming story, I highly recommend the Caroline Thompson version over this version.
PS- Amazon, please stop getting people's hopes up with this movie poster! It's the wrong one :-(
I hate this version of black beauty..... Just stick with and like the new one better - from 1994. The new one is more about the horse, and i think there is TO much talk in this 1971 one! Allthough, it is just not as good as the 1994 version

This movie version has no redeeming value and is completely inappropriate for children. It has nothing in commong with the actual book other than the title. Read morePublished 20 months ago by JL
My son liked the book much better. It was a good time filler.Published 20 months ago by Carson's mom
Very good. I am horse crazy, but the only thing that kind of made me give it four stars is the intro is so long I wanted to go ahead and watch the movie. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Erin Enfield
