Charming American Version - Black Beauty review by SM

Spoiler Alert
07/11/2018

The great heart-tugging story by Anna Sewell of the life of a loved horse in good times and bad is in this version set, instead of England as the original, in the eastern United States in the 1890s. It is not to be confused with the earlier British TV version. However, the essence of the story is well captured and few horse lovers will not shed a tear. The cast is extensive and it is generally well acted, particularly by Black Beauty himself, even if the star on his head is chalked on. And Ginger is played incorrectly by a grey. It is authorised for educational use, and would hence suit children as well as adults. It shows its age technically, in 4:3 format and somewhat deteriorated picture quality. Runs over 3 DVDs.
