Movie Info

Before it became one of Hollywood's busiest B-picture mills, Monogram Pictures had a fondness for literary adaptations (The Moonstone, Jane Eyre etc.) Monogram's 1933 Black Beauty was, of course, based on the classic novel by Anna Sewell. Only a few of the many anecdotal adventures of the titular black horse are dramatized herein. Black Beauty is raised by a loving family, is abused by unloving owners, then returns to the loving family again. Silent movie star Esther Ralston is top-billed, but the true acting honors go to Black Beauty herself. The story would be remade by 20th Century-Fox in 1946, and for television several times over.
