THE BLACK STALLION RETURNS (Theater Release USA 1983)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Black Stallion Returns does not serve at the same entertainment level as its parent movie, The Black Stallion, partially because movies that work around the ‘love of horses’ theme need to be presented at highly spaced intervals to fully appreciate. The film, however, still delivers due to the wise choice of moving this story into a Lawrence of Arabia desert setting which adds enough value/difference to once again capture the status of a classic children’s watch. Great work for Director Robert Delva.

Storyline

A young boy goes on a long journey in search of a beloved stallion.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Robert Dalva for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Francis Ford Coppola for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Alec Ramsay (Kelly Reno), Raj (Vincent Spano), Kurr (Allen Garfield), Meslar (Woody Strode), Abu Ben Ishak (Ferdy Mayne), Tabari (Jodi Thelen), Alec’s Mother (Teri Garr), Tiny Man (Larbi Doghmi), Raj’s Father (Angelo Infanti), and Scarface (Luigi Mezzanotte).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is a sweet, clean adventure for the whole family and can be a good child/adult share flick especially if the child loves horses.
