Gene Edwards, who plays Grizzly Adams, was a frequent stuntman for Dan Haggerty, who is most famous for also portraying Grizzly Adams. Edwards' size and resemblance to Haggerty was a major factor in him being cast in the role. See more »
In this 1990 sequel to the movie and TV Series Grizzly Adams, the mountain man returns with his Bear (Ben) and goes on a new series of outdoor adventures. Dan Haggerty is replaced in this one with a forgettable lookalike. Haggerty was likable in the role and is sorely missed in this one.
Grizzly Adams was based on a real-life western character and was even featured briefly in Paul Newmans's "Life & Times of Judge Roy Bean". In this film, a standard script and poor pacing hamper the viewing experience.
This film was at best average, but fans of the famed character should find it worth an initial look.
