Lost Long Ago
15 December 2007 | by parkerr86302See all my reviews

I saw this film theatrically, but it seems to never have had a video or DVD release, nor has it been on television. It is easy to see why. The film was a final effort to wring money out of Dan Haggerty's Grizzly Adams TV series, and believe it or not, the film is a patchwork job. Virtually the entire film is made up of clips from the TV show, as well as footage from the theatrical film ADVENTURES OF FRONTIER FREMONT, all edited together in a failed attempt to make a coherent plot out of it. Jack Kruschen's scenes also were bodily lifted from the 1977 Grizzly Adams Christmas special, ONCE UPON A STARRY NIGHT. The producers hired Denver Pyle to narrate the "story", but it makes no sense, needless to say. I'm sure the children of the era who liked the series were terribly disappointed when they went to the theater, expecting to see a new Grizzly Adams adventure. I don't wish any film to be "lost", but trust me, this is no buried treasure.
