    TCM is doing an Elizabeth Taylor marathon this weekend. Lassie starts at 5 am Saturday, and National Velvet comes on at 6:30 am.

    National Velvet is the best horse movie ever.

    National Velvet is an awesome movie. So funny the way her folks called themselves Mr Brown or Mrs Brown. Elizabeth Taylor was the coolest kid in Lassie.

    We watched National Velvet last night on NetFlicks. That was a really well done horse movie! Very realistic, and the banter between the characters had me howling!

    I've never caught more than bits and pieces of this movie on TV and that happened again just now! At least I got to see the climatic race at Aintree National (funny, I had always thought this was about an American race).

    BTW, I noticed all the riders sat their horses and even had chair seats. Does anyone know if that was actually the case back then, or was that just Hollywood?
