I had forgotten how good this movie is!

I had just purchased a used copy of"The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams" and I had honestly forgotten just how good this movie was. I had last seen this movie when it was first released in 1974, and I was the young and tender age of nine! That was thirty-two years ago. I had forgotten the simple-but-wonderful storyline. The way that you can almost "feel" the wonder of the mountains through the each of the characters,(I always did love Ben.) and the very relaxing acoustic music score. The breathtaking cinematography almost makes you feel like you're there!I whole-heartedly recommend this movie to anyone, and to Hollywood I ask"why can't you make more movies like this"?

I liked this movie. I think this is a good movie with this man connecting with nature. I also liked the 1977-1978 TV series of the life and times of Grizzly Adams. This movie is about a man that was convicted of a murder he did not commit. He ran of in to the forest. he found a bear on a edge. He took care of the bear. He met a native that lives out in the woods with a broken ankle. He made him a splint and they became friends. When the weather started to get colder he built a raft and Ben and him went down the river. When he found a good place he started to build a cabin. He lived there with Ben until they found the real person that committed the murder. I liked this movie. I wish they would make more movies like this.

Good Family Film, Unforgettable Character.

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.
