Editorial Reviews

Moki (John Yesno), a Cree Indian, is made foreman of a sprawling cattle ranch owned by his former army commander. But he carries with him through life the lore of his own people. When he rescues a bear cub, Wahb, he feels a mystical connection between himself and the magnificent creature. Later, Wahb, now a 1,300-pound bear, returns from the wild to wreak havoc on the cattle ranch, and Moki must face this fearsome grizzly. This spectacular film depicts a territorial battle over a country of breathtaking beauty.

"The King of the Grizzlies" combines a wonderful animal tale with spectacular outdoor scenery to make for a wonderful movie that will be enjoyed by the entire family. In this movie, viewers learn a lot about bears live in the wilderness and the role of man vs. animal in the untamed West of 1899. Viewers also learn a little about Native Americans and their culture, especially their bond with nature and wildlife, as seen through the devotion of Moki (the Indian boy who helps the Colonel with his catttle drive) and Wahb (the bear who is the main star of the movie). Animals and outdoor scenery dominate much of this film. Constantly changing events in Wahb's life and travels hold the viewer's attention, along with the beautiful forested mountains and rushing blue waters. A great film for the entire family. Fast paced, lots of natural action and drama. A must see.

Taking place at the tail end of the Old West era, King of the Grizzlies documents the story of Moh-Sum-See Wahb, a grizzly bear with an odd track-mark. He lives an idyllic life with his mother and his twin sister. He hunts, plays, meets a marmot and a badger, and even does some snow sledding on a vessel made of bark. As the events unfold, a narrator (Winston Hibler) tells us what we're seeing and what Wahb is presumably thinking and feeling. Eventually man comes into the picture, bringing with him a whole lot of trouble. The movie is slowly-paced and might bore the tykes, but the scenery and wildlife is breathtaking. Based upon The Biography of a Grizzly by Ernest Thompson Seton.

In the tradition of walt disneys true life adventures. King of the grizzlies joins the library of disney style animal adventures. Like "Nikki wild dog", "Lobo", and various others, it is an animal adventure story with loads of true life adventure polish and overtones to it; complete with narration by Winston Hibler, a veteran of almost all disneys true life adventures. The scenery is breathtaking. For those who grew up with the sunday night disney show in the 60's and 70's it will bring back a lot of fond memories. They really dont make them like this any more; devoid of the cynicism which tarnishes modern family films, though a little dated in some respects, its a piece of disney nostalgia that children should see. If only Disney would release Perri, the most hidden animal adventure of all.

When grizzly cub Wahb's mother and sister are killed by the Colonel, a local rancher, the Colonel's Cree Indian foreman, Moki, tries to help his "brother bear" by taking him far out into the wilderness and away from the humans invading his land. Little Wahb still struggles, of course, growing up without his family; no one to teach him how to survive, hibernate, or anything else. He manages, however, and grows into a true king of grizzlies. That makes no difference to the Colonel though, when Wahb returns years later to unintentionally wreak havoc and frighten his men and animals. Wahb's only chance at survival again lies in the decisions made by Moki in his struggle to balance emotions and responsibilities to his heritage and to his career.

In the tradition of Disney True-Life Adventures and animal stories, 1970's "King of the Grizzlies" is a true Disney treasure featuring legendary Disney animal-film narrator Winston Hibler (for the other Disney animal-film narration legend, Rex Allen, try "Charlie the Lonesome Cougar"). If you grew up with these sorts of films, either in theaters or on the Disney Channel or Disney anthology series, you already know what a wholesome and relaxing delight they are, great for the whole family to watch together and full of fun, humor, education, and the majestic beauty of nature. "King of the Grizzlies" fits right in with the other Disney animal classics with its story of life as a grizzly and the good and bad that can come from man's interaction with the animal kingdom.

Warning: King of the Grizzlies does depict animal death by shooting.

I first saw this film in the theater with my parents in the early '70's. It is a Disney adaptation of Ernest Thompson Seton's "Biography of a Grizzly." "King of the Grizzlies" is Disney fare, which means that it is definitely family-friendly AND possessed of excellent photography and cinematography.

The story itself loosely follows the plot of the original story but does not distort it. The original "Meteetsee Wahb" was an 1100-pound cattle killer that was not nearly as cuddly as this bear is, but the cinematic Wahb is very handsome, well-trained, and does evoke a certain sympathy for the species. Most Disney films featuring live-action animal performers were designed to evoke viewers' support for animals, and this one is no exception. To its credit, the film also does not represent an attempt to malign the reputation of early Western hunters or ranchers.

Great family fare to watch with your kids on a weeknight or a weekend afternoon.
