International Velvet is the sequel to the much-loved 1945 classic National Velvet
, in which Nanette Newman takes over the part of Velvet Brown, previously played by Elizabeth Taylor. The
now grown-up heroine helps her rebellious niece to become an Olympic showjumper, with the help of handsome trainer Anthony Hopkins. 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.
Like its predecessor, International Velvet boasts a stellar cast which includes leading men Christopher Plummer and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Don't forget
you'll need a box of tissues for this one.Feedback: Helen: So glad I found these after buying the ones on Amazon that don't work in England. x
