Great family story, 1 September 1999
Author: Ronald R Schultz ( from Warren, MI

The movie has outstanding scenery and a wonderful message about a boys relationship with a big cat. It was great to have Peggy Ann Garner back on the screen as an adult actress, after such a long absence. The character that Miss garner played was named Susan, not Martha.
