Black Beauty (1946, 20th Century Fox)
I saw this version years ago and today, I finally saw it again on TCM. The cast is outstanding and the production values are nice, but at the times, the editing is just abruptly cut and I have a feeling that this film was meant to be longer. The length of the film and the editing make it just short of being a true classic. If it was filmed in technicolor, it would have really brought out the beauty of this story. The performances are great as well.
