From its turbulent beginning in a storm-swept sea to its unforgettable horse race finale, The Black Stallion is a modern-day movie landmark.

Upon their rescue, Alec and the magnificent horse continue their adventures when they join forces with ex-jockey and horse trainer Henry Dailey (Mickey Rooney). Recognizing the winning combination of The Black's remarkable spirit and Alec's unwavering devotion tohis friend, Dailey 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."

I've seen more recent movies released on to Blu-Ray that would be more realistic to complain about with it's re-issue onto Blu-Ray. For example, the higher definition transfer of "AI: Artificial Intelligence" and even "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion" look less than expected for quality for how recently these film were put out initially.
Anyway, no matter what, no film released over 30 years ago is going to look as good as any currently released film.
The thing to do is to avoid watching a movie like this immediately after watching something newer. That way you won't be so quick to see the unavoidable, less-than-tolerable difference.
The boy, too, was very natural, a little man of very few words. From simple beginnings his life becomes an epic tale. Great supporting characters. Great movie... that is still haunting me.
