Heartwarming tale of life in the forest
27 July 2001 | by (Deltona, Florida) – See all my reviews

Filmed in Cinecolor this is a remarkably effective story about a lost child (Billy Severn) raised by an old Hermit and who is taught about life amid nature in the forest. Endearing character actor Harry Davenport (Dr. Meade in Gone With The Wind) is just wonderful as Old John with his dog Bruno at his side and pet crow on his shoulder.There's good support from lovely Brenda Joyce as the kind lady and also from Edmund Lowe. It's available on video folks so you can rent it for the whole family to enjoy.
