X is for Xtra (Wild Card)

Welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge where I will post on a word
featuring a different letter of the alphabet each day of the month of April.
My theme for this challenge is Animals on TV and Film.

"The Black Stallion"

THE STORY: A boy named Alec and a wild Arabian stallion are the only survivors of a shipwreck, washing up on the beach of a deserted island. Alec and "The Black" learn to trust each other and thrive in their island paradise. Eventually they are rescued, but modern life has lost its appeal as both recall their days of freedom on the isalnd.

ABOUT THE BLACK: This horse is a survivor -- imprisoned by Arab traders on a ship, swimming for his life when the ship explodes, and trapped by tangled ropes among boulders on the island. Alec is his only friend; he saves the horse's life and the horse saves Alec's. When they are rescued, The Black experiences new adventures as a race horse trained by none other than Mickey Rooney. 

Name three things you'd like to have with you on a deserted island.


  1. I'm assuming this desert island has wifi? My computer, every Star Wars movie, and an endless supply of chocolate and peanut butter.

  2. Cool movie!

    A boat, a plane, and a pilot.

  3. Leslie: Good choices! I could watch Star Wars for all eternity easily. Chocolate and peanut butter makes it that much better. The Force be with you.
