Ordinary children's film with a few good moments.
30 November 2008 | by jeff-1662See all my reviews

This film was never shown publicly till tonight and its clear why. Hammy acting, with the exception of Romero plaque every scene. The score is too heavy with violins kicking in frequently. The cinematography seems quite good and along with Romero, keep the viewer involved. The child actor is so so and the story-line with dog is lame. I guess this filmed before animal rights groups monitored film-making as there are some scenes that come close to animal endangerment. The film does end fairly well with some great action scenes. If you like Disney films from the fifties and sixties, you probably will find this film entertaining.
