As a child and one in love with horses I was obsessed with watching National Velvet. It was a classic, heart felt film and starred Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney. I would watch the film in the morning when I woke up and run outside and spend hours in the paddocks of our family property with my horses. Today, the films star Elizabeth Taylor passed away in Los Angeles. Although I haven't seen many more of her films, she certainly played a part in my childhood and no doubt many others. A classic beauty she will forever be remembered.
