Critic Reviews for Savage Sam

All Critics (5)

Not bad sequel to Disney's Old Yeller w/mostly same cast.

March 23, 2008 | Rating: 3/5

for as good as Old Yeller is, there's its counterpart on the disc - the weak sequel Savage Sam.

February 4, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

This 1963 sequel to Old Yeller is every bit as bad as the first movie was good.
