    From its turbulent beginning in a storm-swept sea to its unforgettable horse race finale, The Black Stallion (from Francis Ford Coppola`s Zoetrope Studios) is a movie landmark. One of the most highly praised productions of 1979, Carroll Ballard`s film is a wonderful experience for adults and for kids. When a shipwreck leaves Alec (Kelly Reno) - a courageous young boy - and "The Black" - a wild Arabian stallion - stranded on a desolate island, the two share a frightening adventure of survival which forges a lasting bond of friendship between them.

    Upon their rescue, Alec and the magnificent horse continue their adventures when they join forces with ex-jockey and horse trainer, Henry Dailey (Mickey Rooney). Recognising the winning combination of The Black`s remarkable spirit and Alec`s unwavering devotion to his friend, Dailey takes both under his wing and prepares them to go head to head with the world`s best thorougbreds in the race of the century.
