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 Great Childhood Movie!
27 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a young child when I saw this movie and I loved it. Back when a family could watch a movie together and it not be spoiled with sex, violence and obscenities. I seems that now even movies directed for children and families are way out there and leaves you wondering "what kind of film was that?" The book was very good also. I remember this movie and also "Pablo and the Dancing Chuchuahua" as two of my fondest childhood movies. I have a daughter that I would love to see this movie. I'm sure she would love it as much as I did. Also I would like to see it again also. Does anyone know how these movies could be obtained? Or even if any channels can show them on TV?
