Black Stallion movie – 40 years!! Part 3

 

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!!

JR, as he’s known, is a great stunt man working on a lot of your favorite films. Those night scenes of the shipwreck were some of the most difficult, and intense, parts of filming Black Stallion. He was an inspiration for a young dude working on his first movie!

Stunt coordinator Glenn Randall Jr. wore many hats during the making of the movie classic.

A couple pages from the book;

This one I think is very interesting as Ben Stahl was writing “BlackBeard’s Ghost” at the same time (1965) which became a Disney movie.  All the ‘kids’ went to school together at Out-of-Door on Siesta Key.
The Stahls lived just up the road on Casey Key.
