Did You Know?


When Uncle Jim is talking to Homer about making moon lily tea, the position of the rifle in Homer's hands keeps changing between shots. In the side shots of Homer, Jim, and Irons, Homer is holding the rifle at an angle to the left; in the close front shots of Homer only, he is holding the rifle pointed straight ahead (toward Irons).

Voice-over: This old world has seen a lot of changes since Teddy Roosevelt's day, but his dream came true, and the Grand Canyon will stay the same, as long as there is a world. Brighty has long since left this earth, but some animals, like some men, leave a trail of glory behind them. They give their spirit to the place where they have lived, a part of the rocks and streams, the wind and the sky. Brighty's spirit lives on. Forever wild, forever free.

A good choice for the family
17 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

A western flavored adventure film that takes place in the Grand Canyon around the turn of the century.

A nice Disney type movie about a a boy and his beloved burro Brighty. A movie that the whole family could watch together.

After renting this film we then took our family vacation at the Grand Canyon to see it for ourselves. The kids fell in love with Brighty and of course we had to see all the "burros" during our canyon trip. Found out that the movie was based on a true story of a burro called "Bright Angel" or Brighty for short.

Just bought the DVD version of the movie...great sound and such canyon scenes!
