    I first saw this with my kids when it came out--we all loved it. When it came to VHS, I bought it, now I have it on dvd--unless one of my now grown kids "borrowed" it again. If they have, I will rebuy because of the story, time period, characters who are real for that time, and because I have to have it in my dvd library. This is one of the first movies by John Cusack and I own most of his PG-13 movies--some I watch on tv after editing for family viewing. There are many places in this movie that make you want to cry, and you do cry and laugh. These two young children are alone in the depression era and have very strong characters showing a tough I-don't-care attitude, but when they separate to go different ways, you know they'll find each other again.

    This is a childhood favorite!

    I love this movie!!! If you liked White Fang, you'll love this one. As a matter of fact it's the same dog! This is a great family movie.

    Great Movie. Crummy DVD.

    I saw it in theatres when I was a kid, I bought the VHS when 1st available; I was overjoyed to the point of near misty-eyed-ness when I recieved the DVD from my wife. TjoNG is one of the reasons I fell in love with wolves & learned to overcome my American cultural ignorance of them. The movie is the reason I listened more closely to my grandparents tales of the depression; why I stopped thinking depression meant an emotional state & recognized it as an economic problem. You & your kids can *LEARN* something from this movie, you can enjoy watching it, again & again; there's a marvelous emotional hurrah! throughout the entire story, Disney at it's finest without the clubbed-over-the-head forced-spoon-fed social & morality message & commentary. The scenery is breathtaking, you kinda think I wish I could go back to then & live in that incredible world. The music is perfect, nudging & reinforcing without interrupting or annoying. This is also one of Scatman Caruthers' last roles, doing what he does best; adding a touch of autheniticty that makes our suspension of disbelief effortless. The DVD is a horiffic slap in the face to the theatrical release, the cast, crew & it's *SO* bad it makes the movie look shoddy. I won't reiterate what the other people so ably & eloquently illustrated of the flaws, I'll just say BUY THE VHS! if you can't, well, this DVD is better than nothing. Barely. The only reason there're 3 stars is because I was in the theatre on a magical night near to 2 decades ago & I *KNOW* what should have been on this disc. Let's not even mention the despair of finding no extra features.

    Meredith Salenger

    think Tatum O'Neil in Paper Moon or Natalie Wood in Inside Daisy Glover. This girl is a wonderful actress and absolutely adorable. Lovely Film!
