Storyline

Despite his tender age, four year old Melvin Beebe is an expert archer. At his family's farm on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state, Melvin uses only props as target practice. These practices however are only a prelude to his first hunting experience in the forests around the farm one spring morning. The purpose is to bring home trophies to mount on his walls. The animals he encounters that day change the focus of what he ends up bringing home. Written by Huggo

Cute Short

The Little Archer (1949)

** (out of 4)

Cute if rather unmemorable short takes a look at Melvin Beebe, a boy from Washington who is a master shot with a bow and arrow. The documentary starts off showing his skill by hitting some targets and then he sets out to become a great hunter but when he encounters a bear, a mountain lion and a deer, he must decide whether or not to kill them. This is a pretty harmless short from Warner that most adults will probably be bored with but I'd say some kids might enjoy seeing the three animals. I think young children of today could also enjoy it because it was shot in Technicolor so this will probably help with that. The color footage is actually pretty good and it really helps in the nature scenes. The story itself really isn't all that memorable and you have to wonder why this kid wants to be a great hunter and yet doesn't want to kill. Either way, this is mildly entertaining and harmless enough for at least one viewing.
