Disney organization's flair for taking a homely subject and building a heartwarming film is again aptly demonstrated in this moving story.
It comes from Disney's thoroughly proved mother lode: movies for the kids that adults will stay to enjoy themselves.
Sentimental, yes, but also sturdy as a hickory stick.
Both an exciting adventure and an effective tear-jerker.
I proudly stand up and say it is a classic.
Tearjerker is one of the best early Disney dramas.
Disney Studios' first and best attempt at a boy-and-his-dog film...
Everyone sheds tears for this family drama
Every bit the warm, comfortable, and tragically bittersweet classic that had you sobbing like a infant the first time you saw it.
Classic Disney tearjerker still grabs.
What makes Old Yeller more than run-of-the-mill Disney is not only the gut-wrenching climax, but also the remarkably well-done uplift of the denouement.
Of all the boy-and-his-dog movies Hollywood's ever made, "Old Yeller" remains among the best.
The entire time I was watching this Disney classic, I was thinking that it could never be remade for a modern audience without PETA taking serious issue. Throughout this film a yellow dog named Old Yeller hangs around with a post-Civil War frontier family. A mother (who seems to have no control over her children), and two young boys battle wildlife constantly. By battling, I of course mean that the children often claim baby animals as their own and are surprised when their full-grown mothers chase after them. The film doesn't teach children to treat animals well. The children in this movie ride the dog, make it herd wild hogs, and let it fight way bigger animals alone. Seriously, there is no way to remake this film unless the entire story is changed. The ending has been made infamous, as it's a heartbreaker for young children. It's not as bad as it could have been, since the next scene has the father telling his son to move on. If you're looking for a good family film, watch almost any other Disney film for best results.
It was all around a good film.
A classic movie that teaches everyone the danger of stray dogs and the deadliness of rabies. It's fearless at displaying animal death and for that it is worthy of praise, but too many people love it for the dog story. I think it's weak in that area, where it excels in is depression and two neglected children who are forced to replace their father.
Astounding! One of the best films ever! Definately the best film of the 50's even though I have barely seen any!
