The Black Stallion Returns is the 1983 sequel to the original popular novel adaptation, also based on source material by original author, Walter Farley, directed by Robert Dalva (Crime Story). Alec Ramsey travels to the brutal and glorious Sahara desert, in search of his beautiful Arabian Stallion, who has been taken away by its original owners. Along the way, Alec finds a good friend in Prince Raj, who takes the boy with him on an unforgettable quest that will lead them to the stallion, and also to a race like no other. Every five years there is a great horse race in the Sahara desert, with different tribes racing their finest horses to win honor and respect from the others. A man from the Uruk tribe goes to dishonorable means to sabotage the race, while the Berber tribe, led by Prince Raj is more honorable in their methods. This film culminates in a glorious and exciting race, with young Alec and his best friend racing against each other; the boy for possession of his horse, and the Prince, for the honor of his people.moreless
