LOVED this movie & TV show
18 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVED this movie and the TV show as a child in the 1970s. Watched the show with my dad ALL the time, and it still reminds me of him. James "Grizzly" Adams is wrongly accused of murder, and flees into the wilderness to safety. There he saves an orphaned bear cub, who grows up to be Adams' best friend, the lovable Ben. Adams has a special bond with all the wild animals in the forest. They have all kinds of adventures with nature, and a few people here and there. Very innocent movie and TV show (no sex or excessive violence), and it sounds cliché', but they just don't make them like this anymore. I cannot seem to find the 1974 movie in print on DVD, and I would LOVE to. If anyone knows if this is available on DVD anywhere, please post about it. As far as I have found I've only seen old VHS copies for sale, and I don't have a VCR. Catch this movie, TV show, and the conclusion movie "The Capture of Grizzly Adams" if you get the chance. All 3 are a great moment in time.
