The Black Stallion

After being shipwrecked with a magnificent horse off the coast of Africa in the 1940s, a boy bonds with the stallion, and trains him to race after their rescue.

Alec (Kelly Reno) encounters a magnificent black Arabian horse while traveling aboard a steamship around the coast of North Africa with his father (Hoyt Axton). When a disaster destroys the ship, Alec frees the horse and escapes with it to a nearby island, where they form a close bond. When Alec is rescued, he insists the horse be rescued too, and both return to America. There, Alec and former jockey Henry (Mickey Rooney) work to train the horse, which Alec names "The Black," for a race.

"This movie belongs among the great filmgoing experiences. It is described as an epic, and earns the description." - Roger Ebert

"The Black Stallion is a perfect gem. Based on Walter Farley’s 1941 novel, Carroll Ballard’s feature debut is rich in adventure, suspense and mythical elements and marks the director as a major talent. Ballard’s camera eye and powers of sequence conceptualization are manifestly extraordinary." - Variety
