I first saw this movie when I was in third grade and it is still one of the most heartwarming movies I have ever seen. About a boy who, during the great depression, skrimped and saved to buy a pair of coon hounds. After he finally got them he raised them to become the best pair of coon hunters in the county. What the dogs do for him proves an unconditional friendship to the end. I never fail to cry at the end. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

A heartfelt film about a boy and his passion for coon hunting. If how well the relationship between people and their pets should decide the value of a movie then this film is solid gold!Set in the 1930's it's realistic atmosphere, period and setting is so stunning, that it holds you to your seat from the start. Excellent acting, especially by James Whitmore and Stewart Peterson. Peterson, particularly, is extremely convincing as Billy. You would have to search long and hard to find as appealing a performance from one so young!In reviewing a film of this nature, you really have to judge the emotional level and how easily you are moved. Some animal movies (OLD YELLER, BORN FREE and others) move you to tears very easily. This is one of those films. Others seem to be strained to say the least. For more on that, see my review of the sequel to ....RED FERN GROWS. In any case, if you are looking for a film that can realistically take you to another time and place, tells a great story and does so in a very moving way, this film is for you.

A straight transfer to DVD from video but a very good cut. Where the Red Fern grows takes place in the Depression Era Oklahoma. The kid is absoultely dying to own a set of hunting dogs. He works his put off to earn the [amt] dollars that these 2 red tick hounds, Old Dan and Little Ann and then they become the top coon dogs in that part of the state. While I won't spoil the ending I will say as a dog owner I cry every time I watch with the love that those dogs show for there master and friend. A must have DVD for any dog lover.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL MOVIE ABOUT DEDICATION,FAITHFULNESS,LOVE,AND HARD WORK. MY DAD WAS VERY POOR AND HE WANTED A DOG BUT COULD NOT AFFORD ONE. HE DID ANY JOB HE COULD JUST LIKE BILLY AND FINALLY BOUGHT ONE. THE STORIES MY DAD TOLD ME OF HIS YOUTH IN THE HILLS OF TENN. ARE SO SIMILAR TO THIS STORY BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE BORN IN THE "HILLS" OR HUNT TO ENJOY THIS MOVIE! THIS MOVIE IS FOR ANYONE WHO HAS A HEART AND LOVE FOR ANIMALS. THE ACTING IS EXCELLENT,THE STORY LINE FLOWS PERFECTLY AND THE FEELING YOU ARE LEFT WITH AFTER WATCHING THIS IS PRICELESS. IT IS A 100% FAMILY MOVIE AND THE KIDS WILL BE GLUED TO THE TV. A WARNING THOUGH YOU WILL BE CRYING IN THE END BUT YOU CANNOT MISS OUT ON THIS CLASSIC!

Where the Red Fern Grows was one of my favorite books as a kid and I watched this movie probably half a dozen times when it first came out. Coming back to it as an adult, some things hold up but problems are glaringly obvious.

On the plus side, I think the movie captures the period well. It's a great story and its essence comes through in the film version. The actor playing Billy is excellent, very believable and sympathetic.

But... the other child actors are *really* terrible from the younger sisters speaking in monotone out into space to the two bullies who mumble and don't react to anything when it isn't their line.

The camera cuts away from anything even remotely disturbing (in a movie about hunting!) making it hard to follow the action at critical points. I don't need extreme close-ups of animal butchery, but why make a movie about hunting if you can't film the action sequences or the climax in any way that makes sense?

What dates the movie the most, however, is its winsomeness (Chop down that tree Billy! You promised your dogs!) and its inability to adequately explain tragedy within the terms of the story. The attempts to console Billy seem absurd, even callous, to a modern audience.

I would strongly recommend the book to anyone who hasn't read it. The film version will entertain serious fans but it falls short of classic children's movie status.

This movie is a classic family movie. I loved both the book and movie as a kid and have loved sharing it with my kids. It also has great lessons, of integrity, hard work, dependence on God, love, death, how prayers are answered, etc. "If you want God's help, your gonna have to meet him half way." "I believe every boy ought to have to cut down a tree like this...At least once in his life."

Make sure to get the original movie with Stewart Peterson, the remake is awful.

It was a great movie for anyone who likes animals. The part I liked best was when Billy first got his dogs. I must say they were cute. I have read the book and the movie is true to the book. I also liked "Old Yeller" and "Savage Sam" but I liked "Where the Red Fern Grows" better.

I had never heard of the movie before until my boyfriend brought it home one night for us to watch. He told me I would cry and I promised him I would not. Watching the passion the boy had for these two dogs was amazing and by the end of the movie I was attached to the boy and his dogs and I cried to say the least! For a while after that everytime my boyfriend would just meantion "Where the Red Fern Grows", I would cry. That was in 1991 and we have been married over 6 years now and I have never forgotten that movie. I think it is a classic and all who are tenderhearted should view it. Have lots of tissues on hand when you do.
