OLD YELLER: Walt Disney’s first and quintessential film about a boy’s love for his dog is now an American original as much as it is a Disney classic. No film better portrays the powerful emotions of hope, courage, and friendship. When his younger brother adopts a frisky lop-eared stray, 15-year-old Travis (Tommy Kirk), acting “man-of-the-house,” tries to shoo him away. But Old Yeller soon proves he is anything but “yellow” when he protects the family farm and saves Travis’ life. From its charming simplicity to its gripping conclusion, the drama, humor and heart of OLD YELLER belong in everyone’s collection. SAVAGE SAM: Now discover what happens next in SAVAGE SAM, the sequel to Walt Disney’s classic adventure OLD YELLER, where adopting a new pup sets the stage for more thrills in the untamed West. With his two young masters Travis and Arliss Coates (Tommy Kirk, Kevin Corcoran), gentle and true-blue Sam faces even greater dangers than Yeller. From the ferocious attacks of wolves and wildcats to tracking renegade wrongdoers, our four-legged hero proves his pedigree. SAVAGE SAM is a compelling story of love, devotion, and trust that is sure to win your heart.

This classic family film made a star of 12-year-old Elizabeth Taylor in the title role as spunky Velvet Brown, a girl who’s determined to enter her horse, Pie, in the Grand National Steeplechase. Critic Pauline Kael called it “One of the most likeable movies of all time.” Mickey Rooney costars as a young man who helps Velvet train Pie for the big race. At the last minute, Velvet herself has to ride Pie in the tournament and cuts her hair to pass for a jockey. Anne Revere won an Oscar as Velvet’s mother, as did editor Robert J. Kern, who cut together a terrifically exciting horse race. Donald Crisp and Angela Lansbury are also featured as members of the Brown family. –Jim Emerson

Enormously popular child actress Margaret O’Brien (Meet Me in St. Louis) touches the heart in this classic adventure of a young orphan sent to live at the dark and foreboding English estate of her widowed uncle and his crippled son, played by fellow child sensation Dean Stockwell. Led by a strong will and a stubborn temperament, Mary Lennox (O’Brien) discovers the existence of a secret garden, the history of which slowly reveals the mystery of her uncle and his son’s embittered lives. Eventually, the beloved garden becomes the only hope for their happiness and restoration from the haunting grip of the past. Produced by Clarence Brown, the film is based on the popular novel by acclaimed children’s author Frances Hodgson Burnett (Little Lord Fauntleroy). A dazzling technical effect aptly derived from The Wizard of Oz brings the secret garden alive in a radiant color sequence, making it, and the film, a magical place you’ll have to experience yourself!

40. The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection (South Pacific, The Sound Of Music, The King And I, State Fair, Carousel, & Oklahoma!) [VHS]

by: 20th Century Fox
Release date: Aug 29, 2000
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
This lavish set contains film versions of the five major works by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, who helped define the American musical landscape and rewrite the direction of musical theater. After enjoying extremely successful careers working with others, Rodgers and Hammerstein first teamed up in 1943 for the prairie tale Oklahoma!, with songs including “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'” and “People Will Say We’re in Love.” The subsequent 1955 film starred Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones, who teamed up again for 1956’s Carousel. While that film’s dark nature made it less popular than its predecessor, the score (“If I Loved You,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone”) was Rodgers’s favorite. The King and I (also 1956) featured stage star Yul Brynner as the King of Siam and Deborah Kerr as schoolteacher Anna Leonowens, who must learn Asian customs even as she tries to instill some of her Western ones. The somewhat bloated version of South Pacific (1958) follows two couples during World War II and features standards such as “Some Enchanted Evening” and “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair” from stars Mitzi Gaynor and Rossano Brazzi. The last film, The Sound of Music (1965), proved to be the most popular, with Julie Andrews winning the hearts of seven children and their father with her blissful songs. And if the perhaps saccharine music and plot may test the patience of some, there’s no doubt that songs such as “My Favorite Things” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” have charmed audiences around the world for decades.

Accompanying the Big 5 in this set is the relatively minor State Fair from 1945 (though it does have “It Might as Well Be Spring” and “It’s a Grand Night for Singing”). Some may prefer other entries in the R&H canon such as Flower Drum Song or the television production Cinderella, but State Fair was included because it was one of the five films (not including Sound of Music) released in 1999 in sumptuous remasterings that allow their scores and locales to truly shine. The remasterings ensure good sound and picture quality throughout this historic collection. –David Horiuchi

42. Darby O’Gill & The Little People [VHS]

by: Buena Vista Home Ent
Release date: May 21, 1996
Run Time: 93 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
Purportedly one of Walt Disney’s most personal pet projects, Darby O’Gill shows the effort and care put into it. Even now the special effects hold up shockingly well. Darby O’Gill is an estate caretaker, but in his advanced years he’s more fond of telling tall tales in the local pub about the wee folk than keeping the grounds. A new man (a very youthful Sean Connery) is sent in to take his place, and O’Gill doesn’t know what will become of himself and his daughter. He snags three spectacular opportunities, however, when he catches the king of the leprechauns. This film is whimsical without being silly, supernatural without being outlandish, and all and all a treat for the whole family. –Keith Simanton

Barbara Streisand is a knockout as Dolly Levi, the woman “who arranges things like furniture and daffodils and lives.” And Hello Dolly, is the blockbuster musical you’ll want to see her in again and again. The famed plot concerns Dolly, a young widow and professional matchmaker who sets her sights, and whatever else she can muster, on conquering tight-fisted Yonkers merchant, Horace Vandergeider, beautifully played by Walter Matthau. How she does it has to be the grandest, singingest, dancingest, marchingest flag-wavingest musical there ever was.
