Storyline

Julie, a lonely fourteen year old girl, moves to Manzanita, an Oregon seaside town, from Los Angeles after her writer father, Robert, loses his job. Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-to-bright local logger. The story opens with a 16th century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away. Back in present day, Julie has a dramatic encounter with a large Roosevelt Elk on the beach. Its hooves uncover an old Spanish gold coin in the sand. The Elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and ... Written by Richard Doyon

Trivia

The story begins with a mystical elk on the beach running at Julie and jumping over her. The scene's genesis was in a real event. One summer, when Suzanne Marie and Janine Doyon were just toddlers, they were on the Manzanita beach with their mother, director Jane Beaumont Hall. The children were a hundred feet away playing in the sand. Suddenly, from out of nowhere a huge Roosevelt Elk came running down the beach straight for the girls. "There was nothing I could do," says Hall. "Time stood still as I saw the Elk run towards the girls and then suddenly swerve around them. The elk ran into the ocean and swam out past the breakers. It was an amazing experience. I don't think I had time to be scared for the girls and the elk was such a magnificent creature." Hall remembered that scene when she and Richard Doyon wrote the screenplay. Both the elk on the beach and the elk swimming in the ocean were written into the script. See more »

Goofs

When Julie leaves for the mountain in the middle of a very bad rain storm to search for the gold in the stream, the outside shots show a very dark and rainy day. Immediately afterward, when her mother and father argue about her mother letting her go, her father angrily says, "You let her go out in this?" and gestures through the window outside, but it is clearly dry and sunny outside as seen through the window and the glass portion of the door.

Wholesome family entertainment
29 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We, that is my wife Bridget and twins Sheldon and Brandy (12) enjoyed seeing 'Tillamook Treasure' at the Newport Festival and have recommended it to our neighbors in Temecula. Its a family film of moral value, pleasing to the eye and gentle on your mind. The cinematography is excellent and the actors compliment a dramatic and worthwhile movie event. My kids want me to get the DVD and can't wait to see 'the making of' the film. The producers have filled a void in American movies today by providing entertainment that upholds traditional family values. There's drama, action, comedy and a message which uplifts ones spirit. We wish to thank the writer/producers Jane Beaumont Hall and Richard Doyon. Susan Doyon is a delight to see and Sheldon wants a poster. MR
