Henry Dailey in 'The Black Stallion'

Critics praised Rooney's understated performance in the 1979 adaptation of Walter Farley's 1941 children's novel about a young boy (Kelly Reno) and a horse. Rooney plays Henry Dailey, a former jockey who comes out of retirement to train the stallion, in an Oscar-nominated performance.
