A beautifully filmed adapation of James O. Curwood's NOMADS OF THE NORTH (quite different from the book-- an entire romance plot is dropped-- which is actually better! ), NIKKI is one of the greatest dog films ever. Here is Disney live-action at its best, with incredible scenery and a great story set in the Canadian Northwest of 1899.
Also, the Indian is played sympathetically by a real native actor-- a double rarity from the time of this film's production.
Your kids will love it, and its just what they should be watching... buy it before it goes out of print again. AL

In 1968 when I was 5 years old, my mother took me to visit a couple she knew here in Fairbanks, Alaska. What I remember is they lived in a tent or Quonset hut of some kind. I thought, wow, those were worse conditions than we lived in; a small Airstream trailer that kept 6 of us. They introduced me to their dog and he was very old, but when I went over to pet him, he licked me all over my face and I instantly fell in love with him. His name was Nikki, "he was the wild dog of the north", the very dog depicted in this film. The owners shared about his life with us and they gave me a record that was made of Nikki's story. Back then, the story was on a 33 LP record album as well as the film by Walt Disney. My 3 brothers and I spent many, many nights listening to Nikki's story, it was so cool to see the film after 42 years. I thoroughly enjoyed it, shedding a tear remembering Nikki and the day I spent with him. The story his owner told really had an impression on me as a little girl. Nikki was full of love and affection, battered and torn in the wild and then came through full circle back to love and affection. A lesson we can all learn about life. I was so thrilled to have stumbled across this film and hope you enjoy it! Nikki truly was a friend, and I loved him. He died sometime that year in 1968 I believe, but his memory will always live in my heart.

SCARED both me and my 9 year old daughter. The dog faces challenges in the wild like a hostile pack of wolves and an angry bull elk - all to be expected. What appalled me was the numerous scenes of a racist, sadistic trapper who tires to poison, shoot and then trap the dog. I almost threw up. We had to stop watching this movie. I am grateful that I rented it rather than bought it. I guess DIsney was very different 50+ years ago.

One thing can be said about Disney in the 50s and 60s, and that is it put out some great films with animal stars, from the True-Life Adventure series to "Old Yeller" and others. This film combines a True-Life filmmaking approach with a good adventure story, and the result is entertaining family fare. The Malamute and the bear cub are adorable! Both adventure and nature commentary are shown, combined with gorgeous on-location photography (filmed in Canada) and a nice music score.

The film version of 'Nomads of the North' by James Oliver Curwood. This is a wonderful Canadian wilderness adventure between Nikki (Malemute) and Neewah (Black Bear Cub) and Andre Dupas, the trapper who found the bear cub. When Nikki and Neewah swim ashore after a canoe swamping, their adventure begins.
A great 1961 Disney wilderness adventure filmed near Banff, Alberta.

My great-aunt raised the dog in this film and when I saw it as a child I had a personal interest. Walt Disney made this movie and it is one that you wanted everything to turn out great for the dog. The dog is beautiful and the scenery is great. Thanks to Violet Reddington there is a classic dog film that everyone is sure to love.

I got this movie a year ago and I have already watched it about 40 times! It caught my eye because I have an obsession with Malamutes and this is the first movie I've seen with a malamute as the main star! This movie is about Nikki a malamute and Neewah a bear cub. Watch as Nikki and Neewah go through funny and moving adventures I really recomend this movie!

I watched this movie a bunch when I was a kid and we recently got a Malamute, largely because my viewings of this film made me somewhat obsessed with Malamutes. It was honestly a little hard to watch the puppy and the bear cub tied together and it made me wonder (often) whether the same animal cruelty standards for films existed back in 1961. I still enjoyed it mostly though and it's even funnier in a way because I totally forgot the name of the film until I bought it last week and when we got our puppy 10 months ago, we named her "Nukka". Freud was definitely on to something I think...
