From its turbulent beginning in a storm swept sea to its unforgettable horse race finale, The Black Stallion is a modern-day movie landmark. One of the most highly praised productions of 1979, it is a wonderful experience for all. When a ship-wreck 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 beteen them. Upon their rescue, Alec and the magnificent horse continue their adventures when they join forces with ex-jockey and horse trainer, Henry Daily (Mickey Rooney). Recognizing the winning combination of The Black's remarkable spirit and Alec's unwavering devotion to his friend, Daily takes both under his wing and prepares them to go head to head with the world's best thoroughbreds in "the race of the century".
