National Velvet, family values, beautiful setting, good acting, attractive star and cast
23 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the other post that this television series had the most basic good elements for family viewing and was good for all ages. Without the customary killings and explosive special effects we witness in so many of today's film materials you don't have to worry if young folks will be exposed to adult themes in National Velvet. Lori Martin was a pretty plus to this series and did look somewhat like a young Elizabeth Taylor. She went on to work with Gregory Peck, Polly Bergen, and Robert Mitchum, also, in Cape Fear. I am only just now realizing that there must have been a great many kids who liked Lori then, and lots of guys with a crush on her! What more can a viewer ask for; a girl with a great horse, living with family out on a farm or ranch. We need more of these wholesome kinds of entertainment and this series should be released in DVD and preserved. America needs you, Lori!
