Family Flicks Film Series: The Black Stallion
Carroll Ballard (Duma) made his feature debut with this gorgeous adaptation of Walter Farley’s classic novel about a boy and a majestic stallion who meet during an ocean voyage and bond while stranded on a picturesque desert island. Ballard balances action with subtle characterization, convincingly detailed art direction, and breathtaking cinematography by Caleb Deschanel. (1979, 117 min. Dir: Carroll Ballard 35mm, color)
