The Wild Country
23 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good family movie with the exception of the tornado which having lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where this movie was filmed, tornadoes just do not happen at 6,800 feet above sea level. I remember Frank DeKova as chief Wild Eagle from "F Troop". I lived in Jackson at the time of this film being shot and all the cast was very gracious. Ron Howard at the time was a young man still looking to get his post Andy Griffith career started before discovering his talent as a director. The movie really never went anywhere on the big screen. It was shot over the summer in Jackson and the cast rode in Teton County Fair parade. Frank DeKova would hang out at the local steak house and visit with people. He was a most gracious man. The movie was shot between The Triangle X Ranch in Grand Teton National Park and another Ranch which I do not recall. Also shot on Antelope Flats in the Park.
