The 1940s audiences watch a trailer is for National Velvet. The trailer ends with a "G-rating" classification. These ratings were not in use until the 1960s - the filmmakers obviously used the '70s re-release version. See more »
Oh, come on! This was fun! As tv mini series about famous people go this was quite good. Some good lines, good sets and costumes and a little trashy.
Sherilyn Fenn is sensational! She´s very good, giving Liz Taylor some depth being both good and bad. Worth seeing again! Ms. Fenn deserves better movies and should be a HUGE star, really! She´s captivatingly beautiful, spunky and can act!!! sigh...
