Do you remember "Harry and the Hendersnons"? Neither do I, but who can forget the 1987 made-for-TV Disney Classic, "Bigfoot." I was terrorized at the tender age of 11 by the though of young Candace Cameron being abducted by those big hairy beasts. And the portrayal of the anthropologist by classic stage actress Colleen Dewhurst resembles the work of Katharine Hepburn in her prime. To this day I'm still worried that if I scare the sasquatch they'll bolt and I'll never see Candace again. It's really a shame that this movie has not been made available on DVD. It's just not right that that other bigfoot movie is out there. All that potty humor about piles of Bigfoot skat and silly antics with the family dog lulls us into a false sense of security when it comes to the reality of Bigfoot. "Bigfoot" is not our friend. They are very dangerous. The Disney classic gives a more realistic account of what might happen if you were camping in the woods and got yourself involved in a standoff with a hairy sasquatch. As a result I recommend that you watch this movie, especially if you like to go camping frequently. Maybe if enough people write to Disney it will appear on cable again soon.
