Trivia

Walt Disney thought that Tommy Kirk should have been billed above Brian Keith in the credits because he had more screen time and the film represented some of the young actor's best work. See more »

Goofs

When Bud Searcy makes his miraculous shot, it is the character on the right that falls to the ground. The previous shot showing Lizbeth and her Indian captor clearly show the Indian on the left from the perspective of Bud Searcy. See more »

Loved it when I was 6-love it more at 53!
6 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Stop over-thinking it! This movie was made in 1963! As a child, I didn't realize it was a sequel to Old Yeller and I didn't care. I took it for what it was-a movie about two boys and a dog in the old west. Yeah, watching it now, I see that it's corny and the portrayal of the Apaches is less than politically correct. But if you pay close attention toward the end of the movie, there is a nod to the concept that maybe it isn't really the "Indians" who are the savages after all. This is unusual for a 60's film but especially one so enthusiastically criticized here as being shallow, cheesy, etc. The movie speaks to the innocence of the early 60's-just enjoy it! And to those of you who say the dog has no personality-you must not know dogs...
