Mr. Graff, the store manager: It was in the early days of the town after a raid killed many of the young men.

Ahhh, the good ol' days...
23 December 2003 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

It's been a while since I've seen this movie, but it was always one of my favorites. It was primarily filmed in Draper City, Utah, which is where I spent a lot of my childhood days playing. I used to go out in the same fields, parks, and streets as the movie portrayed. I even went down to the tree house that is shown in the movie. If you've seen this movie, you are probably familiar with Draper City, since Utah is where this film was primarily marketed, as one of the feature family films treasures. If you liked this one, another one I would recommend would be `On Our Own', released in 1988. This was also distributed by F.F.F., and is a pretty good movie too.
