Carroll Ballard's classic The Black Stallion comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen image preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 (allowing the viewer to take in all of Caleb Deschanel's stunning cinematography) and is superior in every way to the standard full-frame transfer. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are available in all three of these languages. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. Although an anamorphic transfer would have made this disc better, what is here is still a visual feast.
