SAVAGE SAM (Theatrical Release USA 1963)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Savage Sam—sequel to the movie Old Yeller—is a sweet revisit to a more innocent era of storytelling. This sequel does not compare favorably with its prequel movie in storyline or presentation, but it still deserves its watch as a good family share movie and has its own spark of creativity due to its simple, straightforward storyline. Several actors reprise their roles from the first film and supplementation is provided with the addition of Brian Keith, Slim Pickens, Marta Kristen, and Royal Dano. The movie is a welcome revisit to past film-ology efforts with a strong focus on late western Americana pioneer history.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good and worthy watch for the whole family. Look for some terrific stunt work involving horses and their riders.
