Poster for the movie "Black Beauty"
106 min - Drama, Family - 1 January 1971
Our rating:

Anna Sewell's book is one of the all-time best-sellers and James Hill's film is a reasonably faithful interpretation of the famous horse's adventures and misadventures. From being the loved companion of young Joe (Mark Lester), via a stint in a circus in Spain, and fighting for the British in India (becoming a war hero in the process), Black Beauty ends up sick and pulling a coal cart, but rescue eventually beckons and, after many years, a touching reunion...
