BLACK BEAUTY (Theatrical Release USA 1971)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Black Beauty
—an average film that gets better as it rolls along—serves a horse loving audience nicely. The movie seems to end bluntly without a good transition, but other than that, it’s a simple British film that makes a good family watch. Good work for Director James Hill.

The movie is about the horse, Black Beauty, and his many owners.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie is simple, straight forward, and easy to follow. The film has an authentic, old-style feel to it that is welcome. If time is limited, Black Stallion is a higher quality horse story.
