Movie Info

What 10-year-old Billy Coleman wants most in the world is a hunting dog. After two long years of hard work, he saves up enough money to buy a pair of redbone hound pups, and it's love at first sight! Before long, Billy trains "Old Dan" and "Little Ann" to be the finest hunting team in the valley. As the inseparable trio chase the wily "ghost raccoon" and confront danger together, Billy learns the meaning of loyalty, courage and perseverance.

Book-based drama has emotional intensity, mild scariness.

...it seems likely that fans of Rawls' book will find plenty to embrace here.

...undoubtedly wholesome family entertainment, and I have no doubt that kids will enjoy it. For adults, the experience might be a tad more tiresome.
