This would be the final theatrical feature film for Dick Foran. He would spend the final decade of his career doing television work. See more »
When Jake Irons and Brighty are crossing the Colorado River in the cage, Brighty freaks out and starts kicking at the wooden cage door. Before he starts kicking, the door is seen to be firm, intact, and unbroken, but in the shot of his first kick, you can see that before the hoof impact the door is already somewhat broken. See more »
You know, Old Timer was right. Burros is sacred critters. They don't never really die.

Brighty is a Children's Classic
I find many films aimed at kids to be very annoying. Especially during repeated viewings. Brighty of the Grand Canyon goes down easy. This old-school classic is easy on adult nerves and holds the interest of younger children. Brighty the donkey is cute and well defined keeping the kids engaged. Joseph Cotten and the cast deliver professional performances.
I grew up in Henderson Nevada. Schools in this area had access to a 16mm copy of Brighty and showed it frequently. I watched it 6 or 8 times growing up. A great family film!
