Storyline

Story of Cam Calloway and his family, who live in a densely wooded area in New England. Cam dreams of building a sanctuary for the geese that fly over the area each year, and he tries several schemes to buy a nearby lake for this santuary. He is thwarted at every attempt, it seems; he and his son try to get enough furs from their trapping venture to get the money, but the bottom falls out of the fur market. He uses the little money they get for a down payment on the lake, thereby losing their house when he can't make the mortgage payment. They move to the lake, where their friends help them build a cabin. A salesman stops in town, and tries to get the people to sell their land for a tourist venture; Cam is outraged at his tactics and takes desperate measures after he himself is tricked.

Quotes

Cam Calloway: Buck, I been asking around. You know something? We could buy this whole place for eleven hundred dollars. I mean, lake and all.
Bucky Calloway: Buy it? Well, what for, Pa? It runs mostly to marsh.
Cam Calloway: Well, for the geese. You know, for a stopping-over place. Some place they could come down every year and be safe from these dogs and guns.
Bucky Calloway: Yeah, but they don't stop every year.
Cam Calloway: Just cos' they ain't been invited. There's a way of bringing them down. Indians got a trick; all you got to do is plant some corn. See you ...

Save some critters by killing the rest
12 February 2010 | by Bob_ZerunkelSee all my reviews

This is one of those great "green" movies that we should rally around.

Brian Keith plays a man who makes his living killing creature after creature. He kills as many as he can all day long. It's his job.

Keith gets upset because other people want to kill geese. For some reason, Keith thinks it is wrong to buy a license and go out once or twice a year and kill an animal. Especially geese.

Keith continues to kill his way. Kill, kill, kill. Kill, kill, kill. Keith makes a nice living with his slaughter.

And he continues to fight people who want to kill a goose or two. Bad, bad people.

Naturally, the pretty pretty geese that people shoot to put food on their table are saved. Yay!! And boy, aren't we lucky that Keith gets to keep skinning animals for their hides.

It's a feel-good movie for all, unless you happen to be one of the animals that Keith likes to kill.
