|First Edition 1941|
The Black Stallion (1979) is a movie starring Kelly Reno as Alec and Mickey Rooney as Henry Dailey, the curmudgeonly old trainer with a heart of gold, and a gorgeous piece of pure-bred Arabian horse-flesh, and well worth your time, winning a couple of Academy Awards. The Black Stallion Returns (1983) and The Young Black Stallion (2003) are not.
The Black Stallion series is perfect for any animal-loving child. They'll teach your child (and maybe you) respect, kindness, perseverance, loyalty and the responsibility placed on all of us to be good stewards of the animals (and people) entrusted to our care. The rewards are incalculable. Enjoy!
