REVIEWS:





"National Velvet should be a joy to all right-minded folks. This fresh and delightful Metro picture tells by far the most touching story of youngsters and of animals since Lassie was coming home. .... As a matter of fact, a more exciting horse race than that shown in this film has never been represented on the screen, in our memory, anyhow. All the thrill and heart-stopping tension of watching the horses top jumps in soaring flights, go down in sickening
shambles or keep on pounding toward the next is captured here."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 15, 1944
