Black Beauty Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This internationally produced adaptation of [[Performer~P110882~Anna Sewell~annasewell]]'s [[Feature~V132260~Black Beauty~blackbeauty]] is essentially a vehicle for [[Feature~V36175~Oliver~oliver]] star [[Performer~P42003~Mark Lester~marklester]]. The young [[Performer~P42003~Lester~marklester]] 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 [[Performer~P110882~Sewell~annasewell]] original are in attendance, including the showstopping "burning barn" sequence. [[Performer~P66229~Walter Slezak~walterslezak]] is the only truly recognizable actor in the film outside of [[Performer~P42003~Lester~marklester]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
