The Adventures of Bullwhip GriffinDirector: James Neilson
This rambunctious Disney comedy was based on the novel By the Great Horn Spoon by Sid Fleischman. Roddy McDowall plays Griffin, the very proper butler of Bostonian Bryan Russell. When Russell runs off to California during the 1849 gold rush, Griffin dutifully tags along. Master and butler team up with Shakespearean actor Richard Haydn, who owns a treasure map./i>

The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is one of Disney's better live action films from the 1960's. Very light-hearted and extremely well written, this film will entertain both young and old. The villian, played by Karl Malden, keeps this story from becoming too sugarcoated. Great performances by Roddy McDowall as the uptight butler, and by Suzanne Pleshette who plays his employer's independent granddaughter. Overall great fun and a wonderful Disney classic.
One of the great Disney oldies.
