Good Family Film, Unforgettable Character.
30 July 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

They don't make films like this anymore, sadly, since it presents such a thoughtful and gentle view of living in harmony in the wild with animals that it no doubt is called "corny" by modern cynics that are far too jaded by our coarse modern culture.

Dan Haggerty debuts as James "Grizzly" Adams, and is perfect casting, though it is a shame that the narration doesn't allow him to speak very much! Great score, lovely scenery, and pleasant(though still sad) story are all pluses. Schick Sunn Classics produced this, as well as other Documentary films like "In Search Of Noah's Ark", "The Lincoln Conspiracy" & "Beyond & Back".

Not yet on DVD, an oversight I hope gets corrected soon!

This film was a huge hit, and led to the TV series.
