BEHIND THE SCENES & TRIVIA: The true story of Johnny Clem is exciting enough, and well worth reading about. Disney naturally made some Hollywood changes to the original story and it sticks to only about 2 years of his life. It is based on the non-fiction book by James A. Rhodes and Dean Jauchius. Jonny became a career officer in real life, retiring as a brigadier general in 1916, and passed on in 1937. He really was injured on the battlefield twice, captured by confederates, and promoted to sergeant by 12 years of age.Read more ›
historical battlefield, where Johnny Clem, later nicknamed, Johnny Shiloh, served. Kevin Corcoran acted as 11 year old Johnny Clem, as well as Eddy Hodges who acted as a young boy in the Army of the South. The cast is full of surprises for actors in this production. This movie presents the realities of the civil war from the eyes of young boys, and the positive aspects of duty and honor, which I had an appreciation for as a young 1st Class Boy Scout when I first viewed this in my youth. This a good family movie, and worth the cost to have it in my collection.
