Reviews

Vier dvd's met zestien afleveringen van de Canadees-Frans-Nieuw-Zeelandse televisieserie 'The adventures of the Black Stallion', die drie seizoenen heeft gedraaid (1990-1993). Het verhaal is gebaseerd op de boeken van Walter Farley en de eerdere verfilmingen: 'The Black Stallion' (1979) and 'The Return of the Black Stallion' (1983). Het verhaal draait om de tiener Alec Ramsey (Richard Ian Cox) die een speciale band heeft met Black, een wilde zwarte hengst die alleen bereden kan worden door Ramsey. Black is onderhand een wereldberoemd renpaard. Samen met trainer Henry (Mickey Rooney) beleven ze allerlei avonturen. Richard Ian Cox ontving de Young artist award voor Beste jonge acteur in een 'off-primetime series'. Familiefilm die elke paardenliefhebber vanaf circa 9 jaar zal waarderen.

Walter Farley (born Walter Lorimer Farley, 26 June 1915 – 16 October 1989) was an American author, primarily of horse stories for children. His first and most famous work was The Black Stallion (1941). He wrote many sequels, and the series has been continued since his death by his son Steven.
