This is an odd movie in many ways. It was dated the day it was released, it was a 50's movie released in 1966. It's a family movie of sorts but also has some solid action involving a great working bear that would have had to frighten kids 50 years ago. And strangest of all, this movie is the rare film that gets better in each act. The first 20 mins or so is pretty rough, but the movie really picks up and keeps building momentum.

I might be alone in my admiration for this movie, it's very hokey, it's something of a family movie with some odd attempts at comedy like turning a character's face green when she unknowingly drinks whiskey to name one.

With that said, it has some soul and some really good landscapes. And you get a kind Jack Elam - maybe that's not something that was ever in demand though.

8/10



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..
