Editorial Reviews

Because he's the son of a political leader in town, Billy Baker struggles to fit in. When he rescues an injured hawk from the prying eyes of a hunting fox, Billy takes the hawk--against the advice of his father--to Mr. McGraw (Oscar® winner Burl Ives), the town outcast who has a way with animals. As the two nurse the hawk back to health, the bond between boy, bird, and misunderstood recluse sparks newfound courage and confidence in Billy. A coming-of-age story of acceptance, Baker's Hawk is a warmhearted film for the whole family.

Some of the scenes seemed dark and hard to make out the details.

When a twelve year old boy (Lee Montgomery) finds an injured hawk, he takes it to a recluse living in the hills, having heard the fellow was good with animals. The two become friends, together train the bird, but when it attacks a bully fighting our young hero, a group of local vigilantees decide to take it out on the old man, always considered him strange. Might the boy and his father rescue their elderly friend before the mob lynches him? A good, solid drama that well addresses issues which are sadly still with humanity today.

Really fine family movie. Good story, beautiful scenery. It's wonderful to watch fine actors like Clint Walker & Burl Ives ply their
craft. This is a keeper that I'll watch many times.

Format: DVD
This film is a heart warming, family friendly movie for children over 12.

There is one scene where the mother (Diane Baker) swears at her husband, and then tells her son to disobey his father. Parents of young children may wish to discuss this before the movie.

Later there is another scene concerning vigilante justice which starts out as if it will become violent, but it defuses and is not violent in the end.

The musical score is touching and appropriate; the outdoor filming is well done.

Clint Walker gives an outstanding and believable performance as the boy's
father. Burl Ives gives an excellent and interesting portrayal of a recluse who has been misunderstood. Young Lee Montgomery is well cast as the son. Diane Baker gives a mediocre performance as the boy's mother.

Format: DVD
Young Billy Baker (Lee Montgomery) finds an injured red-tailed hawk & reluctantly takes it to the supposed "crazy man" (Burl Ives) living at the top of the mountain. Of course, the "crazy man" turns out to be a wise, good-hearted recluse who finds better company among the animals he nurtures than among the townspeople below. And he has good reason -- due to worries about thefts & strangers in the area, the townspeople have formed a "vigilance committee" to maintain order, refusing to go to the local sheriff for help. While the founder of the group is merely scared & concerned, too many who join use it as a means for bullying & venting their own insecurities on anyone who's the least bit different.

Billy's father Dan Baker (Clint Walker) is the one farmer who won't bend & join the group. As he advises his son Billy, once you decide that you're above the law, you can denounce & attack anyone you don't like, while masking it as "public concern" -- a sadly relevant message to this day. But the pressure from his neighbors eats away at him, and he takes it out on his son for "wasting his time" training the injured hawk & learning about a deeper communion with Nature from the kindly recluse.

Matters come to a head when the vigilantes decide the "crazy man" has to be driven from his home. Why? They couldn't say themselves, except that he's different, and they accuse him of being "so high & mighty" -- the truth being that they can't bear their own feelings of helplessness, so they have to find a convenient scapegoat. Again, an all too timely message. Those who want to be left alone to just live their lives don't always get that chance, because their mere existence is seen as a threat by the frightened.

Great movie for the family.
Old fashioned and perfect for a Sat. afternoon watch.
Inspirational and you won't have to be embarassed or
'explain' anything to the kids.
Clint Walker is perfect.

Format: DVD
Baker's Hawk, based on the book of the same name, is one of the greatest pieces of cinema of this genre ever created. Many other films have tried and failed miserably to capture the honest spirit and beauty of Baker's Hawk. Taking place in 1876, it concerns a boy, an injured hawk he befriends, and an old man the town thinks is crazy simply because he likes helping injured animals so they can have a second chance at life. The lessons for the boy are big, as is the bonding of the boy, old man and hawk.

I last saw this on VHS at least 15 years ago and the print on that tape was of so- so quality, and not much has changed with the DVD version, but I can honestly say that it really doesn't make a bit of difference. The scenery is superb, and the story is the same. So what if some film artifacts are present from time to time? With such a poignant story and stellar cast, any other shortcomings are just that, and can easily be ignored. Get this film if you want to have a great viewing experience with your kids again and again. You will definitely not regret it.
