Savage Sam is the sequel to the successful Disney film Old Yeller. This time, the boys take off after a band of Apache kidnappers who have snatched the children of lazy neighbor Bud Searcy (Jeff York). With their true-blue bloodhound Sam, the kids take off with Brian Keith to take back the missing children. The viewer may be confused with the lightheartedness that accompanies the gravity of such an abduction and then is abandoned in favor of a more serious flavor later in the film. Norman Tokar

Not bad sequel to Disney's Old Yeller w/mostly same cast.
for as good as Old Yeller is, there's its counterpart on the disc - the weak sequel Savage Sam.
Still packed with that patented Disney Nature Quaintness, Sam isn't a terrible follow-up, but it lacks the spine that the grown-ups brought to the first film.
