This sequel to the 1944 Elizabeth Taylor film National Velvet focuses on Sarah Brown, a young, recently orphaned American girl sent to England to live with her aunt - a now grown Velvet Brown. The troubled Sarah is only interested in one thing; horses, and has clearly inherited her aunt's talent. She and her horse Arizona Pie (son of Velvet's Grand National winning stead The Pie) work their way up through the world of eventing, finally being selected for the British Olympic Squad, growing up and finding love along the way. Written by
Many of the Olympic judges were - in real life - the coach drivers charged with carrying the actors to and from their hotel. See more »
When the horses are being loaded onto and unloaded off the aircraft, the engine covers are clearly displayed. These are only used when an aircraft is parked overnight, or stored out of service. They would certainly be removed long before flight (the crew are shown going through pre-start checks), and not placed back over the engines immediately after landing (they were visible as the "passengers" were getting off the aircraft).

I love Olympics. Have been watching them since 1972, not a good yr I know, but still I love them. Anyway I was 16 when my dad allow me to go see this movie. Am now 45 and I can not understand why MGM has not allow this movie to go on DVD. I have had 2 VHS and am about to loose my 2nd one because of using it once to many times. Its a Beautiful movie, is about an orphan who is very upset that she most move to England to stay with an aunt that has no re-collection of. Sarah is trying to fit in. Her aunt Velvet Brown, along with her live in lover, they both little by little gives her the trust she needs so they can reach each other. But is not all love in this movie. Sarah must find her path in life and time has not proved her stay is the best way to go. Yet, her aunt gives her the most precious gift Sarah could ever have gotten. Her name...Arizona Pie. Born from The Pie. The original from the movie National Velvet.
Sarah manage to get her self in to the Olympics with the help of a arrogant manager played by Anthony Hopkin. They manage to win a spot in the Olympics and the hope for a second Gold Medal grows. Yes because in the first part, National Velvet, even though Velvet Brown did won the National Velvet, she never got to keep her price because she was to young to race.
