Storyline

Story of Cam Calloway and his family, who live in a densely wooded area in New England. Cam dreams of building a sanctuary for the geese that fly over the area each year, and he tries several schemes to buy a nearby lake for this santuary. He is thwarted at every attempt, it seems; he and his son try to get enough furs from their trapping venture to get the money, but the bottom falls out of the fur market. He uses the little money they get for a down payment on the lake, thereby losing their house when he can't make the mortgage payment. They move to the lake, where their friends help them build a cabin. A salesman stops in town, and tries to get the people to sell their land for a tourist venture; Cam is outraged at his tactics and takes desperate measures after he himself is tricked.

The Cry Of The Wild Goose
29 December 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Those Calloways is a family film from the Walt Disney Studios about a man who was raised by the Indians in rural Vermont and as such has an appreciation for nature that his fellow whites fail to see. As this film is set in the early years of the last century, Brian Keith's character would have an ally in the White House who would be making conservation a prime policy initiative in his presidency.

Theodore Roosevelt would have appreciated Cam Calloway's concern for the wild geese who pass over his part of Vermont going south for the winter. Their passage is something noted and revered by the Indians who helped raise Keith. But his concern for the geese is not something that his family, wife Vera Miles and son Brandon DeWilde, share with the same enthusiasm.

But if Miles and DeWilde are not on the same page as Keith, the rest of the town just ain't even reading the same book. The only real ally that Keith has is storekeeper Walter Brennan. A fast talking salesman played by Phillip Abbott wants to turn their little corner of Vermont into a duckhunter's paradise that might make the town some real money. Naturally they're resentful of Keith who is seeming to take the bread out of their mouths.

Those Calloways has a good cast and a sincere message about conservation. It's not delivered however in the best fashion and the audience never really gets it, why Brian Keith is so passionate about those geese. It's not one of the Disney Studio's better efforts.
