Not as good as the book but still decent.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
Watch the movie first! then read the book! there are parts of the book that Disney couldn't put in the movie, because in 1957, they just could not put nudity in a movie. Tommy Kirk was outstanding as Travis, Kevin Corcorin was cute as Arliss, and it would have been interesting see him naked for the watering hole scenes!
When I was in Elementary school, the library teacher would read this book, The Little House series, and few others to the class, I have loved these books for a life time! "Hydrophobi" or Hydrophobia is what we today call Raibbies!My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
I haven't seen the movie recently ... say like within the last 40 years, but I do recall seeing it. It is the first movie I remember making me cry. Now I don't recall why, but I remember that it made a real impression on me at the time.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
