Most widely held works by Pandro S Berman
National Velvet by Clarence Brown( Visual )

21 editions published between 1944 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As long as young hearts endure, so will National Velvet and movies like it. In her starmaking role, Elizabeth Taylor plays Velvet Brown, a wide-eyed adolescent who, assisted by her jockey pal (Mickey Rooney), trains Pie, a horse she won in a raffle, for the Grand National Steeplechase. Of course, no girl can ride in the National, can she? Yet Velvet, posing as a boy, assuredly does. Superbly directed by Clarence Brown, this exciting winner of two Academy Awards (one to Anne Revere for her performance as Velvet's mother) co-stars a young Angela Lansbury and veteran Donald Crisp. Plus the film has an off-screen postscript as winning as the on-screen finale: the studio gave Pie to Taylor after filming wrapped."--Container
