"Never Cry Wolf".. interesting...


Recommended Posts

This is an outstanding movie, filmed entirely on location in areas of wilderness Canada. While the Disney Company gave the film some respectable support, it?s believed that it could have never been a big moneymaking film, due in part to the lack of ?star power.? Still, the magnificent way director Carroll Ballard created the film was in so many ways a breathtaking experience to watch, especially on a big theater screen. Actor Charles Martin Smith was sensational in his role as nature biologist, finding himself caught up in adapting to the unpredictable environment. And, the main thing to remember is that the motion picture itself was all based on fact or that it all really happened! In the years to come, this little movie may very well turn out to be something of a cult classic. Sadly, when first released, it wasn?t widely seen, until the film made it to video. It?s in that area where ?Never Cry Wolf? found renewed interest and gained some new life. This is one movie that should be highly recommended.

For all of you who complain about "newer" films broadcast on TCM....here's a great example of a more recent film that fits perfectly well in the "classic" format: no other station is going to show it in it's entirety, without interruption. It was overlooked when released and is a perfectly worthwhile film-intriguing story, beautifully filmed and even kids can watch it. Thank you TCM for giving this film the respect it deserves and giving us the opportunity to see it.

And another round of applause for Charles Martin Smith's performance. I can't believe he carried the entire film...now THAT'S talent! (plus, nice bum cakes) icon_smile_clap.gif
