Trivia

The scene where the falcon starts freaking out was caused by somebody upsetting it from behind. If you look closely you can see the arm of one of the crew behind the bird causing it to be upset. I believe the arm might belong to Dan Haggerty, who is also uncredited for this film, but who worked on the film as the animal handler. He later went on to become "Grizzly Adams" in the TV series The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (1977). See more »

Goofs

When Sam is chopping out the tree for his house, the sound of the ax hitting the wood doesn't match the ax actually hitting the tree. See more »

Watch it with your kids.
9 July 2001 | by suzy q123See all my reviews

This film will mean a lot to children of a certain age, particularly boys. It's not really an adventure story, but it is 'boy runs away from family' story done in the old Disney style- that is, you never reall feel that he's in serious danger, and you learn a lot about nature and love along the way. Worthwhile.
