Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Follow Me BoysA Disney classic, Follow Me, Boys! is much more than a scouting primer. Wonderful performances by some Hollywood greats include Fred MacMurray as Lemuel Siddons, the band member and would-be lawyer turned shopkeeper and scoutmaster, Vera Miles as Vida Downey, the bank secretary turned McMurray supporter, love interest and wife, Kurt Russell in one of his first films as Whitey, the small time boy thug who, losing his drunkard dad, is adopted by Lem and Vida, becomes a stalwart in the troop and goes on to become responsible soldier and MD. Finally there's a wonderful cameo by a screen legend, Lillian Gish as the aged business magnate and McMurray benefactor Hetty Seibert.The film includes wonderful scenes from the boys building a ramshackle troop clubhouse out of odds and ends to a later troop taking a war-games tank with flour-bag explosives in what the boys think is an all-out war. If you're looking for deep statements about teen angst (though Russell's character does tackle some pretty difficult stuff), tough kids struggling to beat a drug habit or premarital sex you won't find it here. And thank goodness! Every once in a while it's good to watch a movie that's as squeaky clean as Fred McMurray's white shirts. Want blatant hardcore reality? Watch the six o'clock news. Follow Me, Boys! depicts what can happen when adults care, is just good clean fun, and well-acted and scripted. A great addition to any film library. Douglas McAllister"
Hey, Disney! This is the kind of film you should be making!

"I remember the tune from when I saw it as a kid in the late 60s, and have hoped to see it again ever since. What a breath of fresh air compared to the tripe that Disney puts out today. Films like these remind us of America's Golden Age. Wonderful performances by all, uplifting singing on the trail, and a heart-rending, happy ending make this film a MUST HAVE in the libraries of parents who want wholesome entertainment for their kids. I wonder why more of the 1960's Disney movies have not come out on DVD. As a parent, I dont have to be woried about foul language ,sexual inuendos, or even "attitudes" that my kids will see glorified when we watch films like these. I gave my copy to a newly-minted Eagle Scout, and will order another for my family..."

"Anyone involved with Scouting can relate to this film. It is inspiring to anyone who views it. Fred MacMurray and Vera Miles are at their best. Whenever I feel "burned out" doing volunteer work, I watch this film and get all fired up with the volunteer spirit and am ready to go forward. This is a "must see" film."
A must-see for Boy Scouts and Boy Scout wannabes.

"The story of the formation of a 1930s Boy Scout troop and how it affected the lives of its members. A fascinating trip through the years as the Scouts (and leaders) age and find their place in life. I had this video in VHS format and made a point of showing it to our local Scout troop at least once a year, because it illustrates all the positive things that the Scout Law stands for. I'm very glad it's available in DVD format now, because we wore the tape out."
