The Yearling (1946)

Up for best picture of 1946, so of course I had to see it for myself. Heart-wrenching and at times tough to comprehend the young mush-mouthed lead, but the visuals are downright spectacular for a 40s picture.

The Black Stallion 1979G117 minutes Adapted from the children's book by Walter Farley, this exquisitely filmed animal-lovers' treat follows a boy named Alec (Kelly Reno) from shipwreck to winner's circle with the stunning horse that befriends him. Mickey Rooney was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as a trainer who encourages Alec to race with the stallion after the boy and his horse are rescued from a desert island and returned to their home.
