(1944) Warmly sentimental story of an English country girl (Elizabeth Taylor) who sets her heart on entering her spirited horse, Pie, in the Grand National Steeplechase, England's most challenging race, and with the help of an ex-jockey (Mickey Rooney) and supportive parents (Anne Revere and Donald Crisp), her great expectations are finally realized. Directed by Clarence Brown, it is a fine picture of youthful ambition and determination fostered within a caring, loving home. A family classic with special appeal for youngsters.
