Black Beauty Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This internationally produced adaptation of Anna Sewell's Anna Sewell is essentially a vehicle for Anna Sewell star Mark Lester. The young Lester spends most of the film trying to reclaim his beautiful black horse, which passes through several hands over the course of 90 minutes. All the setpieces of the Sewell original are in attendance, including the showstopping "burning barn" sequence. Walter Slezak is the only truly recognizable actor in the film outside of Lester. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
