There's nothing hip about this vintage Disney film that begins and ends with a corny song about the "best doggone dog in the West." But that's the beauty of Old Yeller, originally released in 1957. The simple, heart-warming story of a boy who bonds with a feisty stray dog in 1860s Texas is full of 1950s sensibilities: A Donna Reed-style perfect "Momma" (Dorothy McGuire) who knows best, a couple of brothers who quarrel in the best sitcom tradition, and a father (Fess Parker, in a small role) who goes off to provide for his family, leaving his older boy (Tommy Kirk) in charge and his incredibly cute younger one (Kevin Corcoran) to steal as many scenes in the movie as he possibly can. With Old Yeller at his side, Kirk becomes a little man, who in the end must make a decision so heart-breaking that it's one of filmdom's most memorable moments. --Valerie J. Nelson

I first saw this as a kid and nearly never saw another movie again. Especially one with an animal in it. For anyone who has ever bonded with an animal (especially a dog), "Old Yeller" strikes a nerve or two. The was also the first time I ever heard the phrase "It's only a movie!" after I saw "Old Yeller" because I cried so hard. This is probably one of the finest family films ever made by the Walt Disney people. It's a simple tale of a frontier boy who bonds with a stray dog (that more than proves it's loyalty) and the boy's final realization that he has to grow up. Dorothy McGuire is the steadfast mother and Tommy Kirk is the boy who must make a gut-wrenching decision that will start him on the road to maturity. I hated this movie for years but as an adult I more than see the beauty of it now and highly recommend it all round. But keep those kleenex handy because if you're like me, you'll need 'em.

The DVD treatment of this film is also the way a classic should be treated. Disney pulled out all the stops for the DVD's in their new "Vault Disney Collection" which has 4 different releases as of 1/29/03. I have always loved this movie, and you can read all the great things about the film itslef from other reviewers and from the vhs reviews. I want to talk about the DVD treatment. First and most importantly it's WIDESCREEN, maybe for the first time outside of a theatre. What a difference it makes, the film is beautiful in its scope as it was originally intended.

EXTRAS!! Read all about it!
There are about 3 hours worth of incredible extra material here. To find all of the extras is not easy, so make sure you poke around and push on every icon (especially arrows) you can and be sure to even pursue the items that do not sound interesting to you since they can in turn lead to yet another submenu of goodies.
The 2 disc set has much more than is listed here or even on the packaging itself. One of the best bonus features is a complete vintage episode of the Walt Disney television show from 1957, the episode called, "Best Doggone Dog in the West". It has half the episode devoted to a behind the scenes promotion of the film, featuring Dorothy McGuire as our narrator. The other half had a great old featurette called "Arizona Sheepdog", that ran in theatres in 1955 before a main feature. (TRIVIA not on this set - this episode was altered in 1961 for its rerun, and the Old Yeller segment was replaced with a 101 Dalmations segment.

This is one of those Disney classic movies that stands the test of time. Brilliant direction, casting, and sets. The sets were done by the same man that did the sets for "Shane". Along with this wonderful story of a pioneer family and its incredible dog. You get a second disc filled with extra features. You get a Pluto cartoon on the first disc that shows before the feature. The movie will appeal the most to dog lovers but has something for the whole family. Old Yeller along with being a wonderful companion risks his life three times to save family members. The fight with the bear, wild pigs, and wolf are intense and not recommmended for young children to see. Furthermore when Old Yeller gets hydrophobia what has to be done will upset the little ones. The scenery is beautiful and the set shots are excellent. The movie is in letterbox format and the restoration is perfect. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants a good family movie for all but the very young.

Old Yeller is required viewing for anyone whose ever cherished a family pet. Bring Kleenex and prepare for a heart-warming, life-affirming, coming-of-age classic with the incomparable Tommy Kirk giving us a very fine performance as that big 'yeller' dog's human counterpart. The quality of this Blu-ray easily advances over the old 2-disc Vault Disney DVD. Solid colors, general sharpness, a light smattering of film grain looking very natural and accurate contrast levels. Occasional built-in flicker does not distract. A few scenes exhibit less than stellar color and slight fading. Overall, you won't be disappointed. Unacceptable - Disney Inc.'s decision to jettison virtually all of the extras that came with the aforementioned DVD set. Dumb marketing decision. Really dumb!!! So, best advice - buy this Blu-ray for the vastly improved image quality. But keep your old Vault Disney set for the extras. Buy with confidence. Treasure forever. Did I mention? Bring Kleenex!

Back in about 1984, (I was 6) our family bought our first VCR. My dad loved "Old Yeller" as a child, and so it was the very first movie we ever rented after the big purchase. I loved it then. It did not emotionally scar me, although it made me cry. I love this movie still, and am still moved to tears everytime I see it.

Without an upgrade to the family favorite Old Yeller on broadcast, the next best thing is to cuddle up to the security of knowing there once was the kind of enduring comfort of a boy and a dog who looked out only for him, and what child has not imagined his own special angel in the form of a dog he could actually feel, touch, and share time with. The symbolism of the dog friend, loyal and fearless, who deserves the honor of so emotional and close a friendship, a love, is beyond compare, and has helped millions of young boys appreciate the special relationship of having a personal confidant whose loyalty was without question, and beyond compare. The human qualities invested in so strong a heart, free from judgement is one of the greatest tales told that has captured the imagination and inspiration of so many boys, and girls alike. For children who need confidence to face the difficulties of life, this story is extraordinarily well suited to children who need heroes. The fact that the hero is a dog simply makes the story endearing and realistic. A wonderfully tender and important teaching tool for children to appreciate the value and extent of loyalty as it can be tested, and pass all tests.
