Magic in the details...
Walt Disney's timeless film about a boy's love for his dog is now an American original as much as it is a movie classic. No film better portrays the powerful emotions of hope, courage, friendship, and coming-of-age. When his younger brother Arliss (Kevin Corcoran) adopts a frisky lop-eared stray, 15-year-old Travis (Tommy Kirk), acting ''man-of-the-house'' while his father is away on a cattle run, tries to shoo the mutt away. But Old Yeller soon proves he is anything but cowardly when he protects the family farm and saves Travis' life. From its charming simplicity to its gripping conclusion, the drama, humor, and heart of Old Yeller belong in every family film collection. Directed by Robert Stevenson, and co-starring Dorothy McGuire (Swiss Family Robinson), Jeff York, Chuck Connors, and Fess Parker (Davy Crockett).
Now discover what happens next in Savage Sam, the sequel to Walt Disney's classic adventure Old Yeller, where adopting a new pup sets the stage for more thrills in the untamed West. With his two young masters Travis and Arliss Coates (Tommy Kirk, Kevin Corcoran), gentle and true-blue Sam faces even greater dangers than Yeller. From the ferocious attacks of wolves and wildcats to tracking renegade wrongdoers, our four-legged hero proves his pedigree. Savage Sam is a compelling story of love, devotion, and trust that is sure to win your heart. Directed by Norman Tokar, and co-starring Brian Keith (The Parent Trap), Jeff York, and Slim Pickens.
