Widower Squire Weldon (Charles Evans). trying to raise his motherless daughter, Anne (Mona Freeman) presents her with a colt, Black Beauty (Highland Dale), in the hope that by disciplining the horse, she may learn to discipline herself. Passing through Birtwick Farms, Bill Dixon (Richard Denning, a young American, arouses Anne's interest when he expresses his hope of finding a "Very beautiful young colt" when he returns to England in two years. When he returns, however, his attitude brings Anne to the realization that she is still considered a "child." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Best Version
18 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is to me the best version of the movie. Most complain because it's in b/w, but that makes it even better. A lot of people don't realize that this was the debut of Fury, the horse from the 50's TV show by the same name. Never a smarter horse was there.
