Old Yeller

Disney organization's flair for taking a homely subject and building a heartwarming film is again aptly demonstrated in this moving story set in 1869 of a Texas frontier family and an old yeller dog. Based on Fred Gipson's novel of same tag, this is a careful blending of fun, laughter, love, adventure and tragedy.

Emphasis is laid upon animal action, including squirrels, jackrabbits, buzzards and newborn calves as well as more rugged depictions. Packed into film’s tight footage is the 115-pound dog’s fight with a huge bear, its struggle with a marauding wolf and battle with a pack of wild hogs.
