Happy 40th movie Anniversary Black Stallion!

Here’s a nice article in Cowboys & Indians (https://www.cowboysindians.com/) on the making of Black Stallion that just came out in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the movie (1979). It was an adventure working on it and a pleasure meeting the many talented people involved. The article has many photos that I shot on the set, it brings back some fond memories. I’ll post more articles in the next few days.
Thanks Elizabeth for your hard work and awesome determination on interviewing such a collection of (sometimes elusive) characters!!

Have a GREAT Thanksgiving!!!

Still fantastic at 40, one of the best-loved horse movies of all time almost didn’t get made.
