Storyline

A fictionalized account of the real-life adventure of the Sager family. Travelling with a wagon train from Missouri to Oregon, things are going well for them, until Henry Sager dies from blood poisoning following an Indian attack, and Naomi Sager dies soon afterward from pneumonia. The leaders of the wagon train decide to send the children back, but the oldest, John (who had been described by all the adults as lazy and worthless), decides to lead his siblings through the wilderness to complete the journey their parents started. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Typical Hollywood Family Fluff Fare
6 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film "Seven Alone," demonstrates what happens when a few people in Hollywood fleece some investors to produce a film that ends up being a joke. And, that is rather sad given that the Sager saga was a real story. A real story that exemplified grit and courage in the face of horrible and tragic events in the lives of seven parentless children.

A previous reviewer noted this. A really GOOD film could be made regarding the Sager saga. However, that would take a solid script, good production values, a talented cast, and a better singer than Pat Boone. All of that being said, don't count on a remake. The market for this kind of film evaporated with the death of Michael Landon. Which is even more sad in a way if you think about it.
