Cam Calloway (Brian Keith) is a man with a dream: to one day establish a sanctuary for the geese that fly overhead during their long migration. Unfortunately, Cam lacks the money to buy the necessary property -- until his son Buck (Brandon de Wilde) embarks on a project that will guarantee success ... unaware that greedy hunters are manipulating the Calloway family for their own selfish gains. Beautifully filmed in Vermont, THOSE CALLOWAYS is a stirring outdoor drama glowingly filmed in the rural New England countryside and featuring an exceptional cast of popular movie performers.

Dull hunter story has animal cruelty and outdated terms.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Those Calloways is a 1965 live-action Disney movie based on Paul Annixter's book, Swiftwater, with dated attitudes to Native Americans and scenes involving animal cruelty. Set in 1920s New England, the story is a long, slow tale about a family of trappers, headed up by Cam Calloway (Brian Keith), who dreams of starting a goose sanctuary. The movie features violence toward people and animals. Fist fights are shown as the only way to resolve conflict with characters repeatedly punching each other in the face, drawing blood, and in one instance, resulting in a man being knocked unconscious. A character is shot with a shotgun and is shown receiving a blood transfusion. Bucky Calloway (Brandon De Wilde) is physically aggressive toward a young woman before forcibly kissing her. There is regular footage of animals being killed or in distress. This includes animals being forced to fight each other, animals being chained up and repeatedly hit, and even a dog being thrown into a frozen lake. There is also real-life footage of geese being shot dead and a distressed wolverine being shot out of a tree. Characters drink socially. After receiving bad news, Cam gets drunk and aggressive. A character calls white people "respectable folk" in comparison to Native Americans, who are referred to throughout as "Indians."
