Goofs

When the Boy Scout Troupe first marches out of Hickory, the boy in the unnamed role of flag bearer has his hair parted on his left side (at 0:17:50), but when they are out in the countryside his hair is parted on his right side (at 0:23:32). Usually, this would mean the film has been flipped left for right, but in that case everyone would have been reversed, whereas Lem's metal is still on his left shirt pocket and his watch is still on his left wrist. This means that either the boy or a production hairdresser parted his hair differently from one day to another, something which could easily happen if the boy usually didn't part his hair at all.

A well-acted feel-good tear-jerker
12 June 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I was six years old when I saw this movie in the theaters in 1966. Back then the screens were big and a little kid like me, seeing other kids on screen looking bigger-than-life, wanted to be just like them. I never joined the boy scouts, but the film's somewhat typical Disney values definitely had an influence on me. Now let's fast-forward almost 40 years later and look at the film from a grown-up perspective. The acting here is marvelous. Anyone over 40 knows all about Fred MacMurray and the great actor that he was, both on TV and in films. Throw in the pretty Vera Miles, the legendary Lillian Gish, and the I-know-his-voice-from-Saturday-morning-cartoons Charlie Ruggles, and it all comes together nicely. The best part of this film? Not the catchy Sherman Brothers theme song...but perhaps one of the best child-actor performances ever...Kurt Russel. Want a movie where you'll cry a bit but then feel real good at the end? Follow this one!
