Tells the life story of a wolf named Lobo. He grows from a playful, curious cub into a wolf with a huge bounty on his head. Along the way he makes friends with deer, tangles with rattlesnakes, has a family, and matches wits with man. The movie doesn't try to sugarcoat the truth and is as close to real life as can be in a movie. Written by
There is no dialogue in the film, a very adventurous move from such a "safe" studio as Disney. See more »
Rex Allen - Narrator:
Singing: Across the lonely campfire when the wolves begin to call. The riders tell the story of the bravest wolf of all. The king of all the hunters, born to lead the rest. His name became a legend across the great southwest. Lobo Lobo your name will survive for no man could bring you in dead or alive!

I'm a little biased; the writer (Dwight Hauser) is my wife's father. We were looking for a copy and came across this site. It was fun for me to watch Marcia (my wife) watch the movie. And as with many thousands of other old folks, I remember it from my own childhood.
I wonder if Lobo's mother was really injured. It certainly looked like it. I asked Marcia, but she didn't know. It seems doubtful Disney would have gone about it that way. Kinda heart wrenching, but an accurate reflection of the disdain held for wolves in those days...heck...even these days by a remaining few.
This is a great find! We are passing it out to all the grandkids...:-)
