When originally released to theaters in 1953, this 69-minute feature film was double billed with Walt Disney's 21-minute cartoon short Ben and Me (1953), as a 90-minute package deal. This and "Ben and Me" were the first to be released by Buena Vista. RKO continued to distribute Disney's cartoons until 1956. RKO shut down in 1957. See more »
Oscar-winning Disney documentary about the American desert (Arizona specifically) and the creatures that inhabit it. This one is lots of fun. A great use of music and absolutely gorgeous nature footage shot in stunning Technicolor. Winston Hibler's narration is fine, if unexciting. Paul J. Smith's music is terrific. Some individuals suffering from anal obstructions might complain about some of the Disney-isms, such as silly sound effects and comedy scenes. If you're one of these, I suggest watching a dry National Geographic documentary that will put most people to sleep. That's probably more your speed. For everyone else, definitely seek out this colorful, fun, and educational documentary. It's especially good for kids who might not have seen such things before. But beware there's lot of close-up footage of snakes and other creepy crawlies in this. So if you or your kids have issues with that, you might want to prepare yourself before watching.
