A classic 70s Disney TV movie starring Jeff East.
16 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Set in 1914, this atmospheric adventure follows young Lonny Bascombe (Jeff East) through the eerie swamplands near his Georgia home.

Lonnie's thrilling saga begins when he and his hunting dog are attacked by Weakfoot, a vicious jungle panther. Shortly afterward Lonnie is captured by a wild man believed to have been dead for many years!

In his efforts to escape , the boy faces even greater dangers from quicksand, poisonous snakes, swamp fever... and weakfoot, who continues to stalk the boy, apparently intent on finishing him off.

Running time: 92 minutes

Year: 1977

Starring: Vic Morrow, Tom Simcox, Jacqueline Scott. Co-starring Noah Beery, Louise Latham, Shug Fisher. Also starring Jeff East as Lonny.

Executive producer : Ron Miller Directed By: Vincent Mc Eveety.

This was released on VHS tape by Rank Video in the UK and is currently unavailable on DVD.

An excellent old-school Disney movie which takes me back to when I watched it many times in the early 80's on television.
