A couple of weeks ago we finally watched the National Velvet CD I got at the thrift store for a Christmas present for the kids.
They saw the cover and actually refused to watch it for over a month, but then they became obsessed with it and wanted to watch it over and over.
Besides being a great story and having famous actors (Elizabeth Taylor, Mickey Rooney, and Angela Lansbury), it also has an excellent parental role model in it - the mother, actress Anne Revere, who actually won an Oscar for her performance.
So rarely do I watch anything at all, but when I do, I even more rarely see people modeling the kind of parent I'd love to be. So I highly recommend getting National Velvet and then going around like I do, saying to myself, "What would Velvet's mother say in this situation?"
