Born to Be Wild being unleashed to theaters this weekend, we thought it was right for us to explore the many great animals that graced the silver screen. As Born to Be Wild explores the African animal kingdom, and the way humans dedicate their lives to saving these endangered species, we focus on the films that explore the relationships animals have with one another or with humans. Whether graceful whale, or mega gorilla, or crazed rabid dog, these animals truly left a print in cinema history.

Francis Ford Coppola's The Black Stallion is one of the most beautiful tales ever told, with a truly stunning star: Arabian stallion, Cass Ole, playing the main
horse in the film. A truly gorgeous, long, and lean horse, the relationship that builds between Cass and "supporting" character, Alec Ramsey (Kelly Reno) is enchanting. From being deserted on an island to becoming an elite competitive horse racer, this is a flick everyone should see.
