Capture, Trial, & Redemption.
20 November 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Dan Haggerty returned to his signature role after the premature cancellation of the TV series, as James Capen Adams is captured after returning to his old town to see his daughter Peg(played by Sidney Penny) when he learns that her guardian, his sister Cora had died. His bear Ben pops in and out of the film, trying to evade hunters led by Frank Briggs(played by Chuck Conners) who knows more about the murder Adams was accused of than anybody realizes... Surprisingly good reunion film "captures" the feel of the TV series well, though the absence of both series regulars Mad Jack(Denver Pyle) and Nacoma(played by Don Shanks) is unfortunate(Keenan Wynn plays another trapper friend called Bert Woolman) Despite this, a satisfying end to the saga(even if it does ignore the outcome of the original 1974 film!)
