After being falsely accused of murder in the 1880's, Haggerty must leave his young daughter in order to save his life. He heads off to the wilderness to hide out and there begins his life as a "mountain man," communing with nature and inevitably becoming just as much a part of the area as

the appealing animals he befriends. After many years of this solitary existence, Haggerty is confronted by a young woman who--surprise, surprise--turns out to be his now-grownup daughter. She tells him he can return home now that his name has been cleared, but everyone who has seen a Sunn Classic

picture of this ilk surely knows what the man answers. The story is banal and completely lacking in credibility. The filmmaking matches, with long, silent passages that feature an unnecessary narration by Haggerty telling exactly what's taking place on the screen. Sunn Classic knew exactly what it

was doing with this film. It contains the same cute "man and nature" components as their other films (THE ADVENTURES OF THE WILDERNESS FAMILY and CHALLENGE TO BE FREE). It's filmmaking at its most basic commodity level, which on the basis of the movie's success worked well. Despite the complete

lack of quality, GRIZZLY ADAMS was well received by the public--and inspired a television series to boot.
