Walter Farley's classic tale has been adapted with amazing facility by Ballard and executive producer Coppola. Even though its essential features (shipwrecked child, desert island, magical stallion, '40s New York) represented appalling production problems, the film jettisons most of the cuteness implicit in its theme and handles the material with dream-like clarity. A magnificently well-crafted movie.
