Turner Classic Movies has shown "The Black Stallion" a couple of times recently. A beautiful movie, ideally seen on a big or at least biggish screen, with a fine late  performance by Rooney.

Oh, I like Tom Drake too, especially in Meet Me in St. Louis, which has insured his screen immortality forever.  It's just that he's not convincing despairing about Ann Sothern or romancing Janet Leigh in Words and Music.  He couldn't fake it the way his direct MGM contemporary Van Johnson could.
