  • "The Colt"

    8.5
    Jimmy McCallion, a child actor on Broadway and radio in the early Depression years, was a truly wonderful and vastly underrated character actor in later years. His performances are always highlights of the "National Velvet" series, in which he portrays the Irish-born ex-jockey serving as the Browns' farmhand and expert handler of Velvet's horse, King. His work in "The Colt" is splendid. Velvet (Lori Martin) is amazed to learn that King is the father of a colt. In a script identical in theme and style to those used on Maxwell's earlier series, "Lassie," the children learn a sad but important lesson: this one being that two stallions are unlikely to co-exist peacefully on one small farm. Velvet acquires the colt, only to realize that she must give him up. The similarities between "Lassie" and "National Velvet" in tone, style, and execution are quite plainly evidenced here.moreless
