Keith is Cam Calloway, an Irish trapper brought up by Micmac Indians. He, his wife, and de Wilde, their 19-year-old son, live in Swiftwater, Maine. Keith hopes to create a sanctuary for the large flocks of geese that fly through town each autumn and spends so much money on land for the

site that he can't make mortgage payments on his house. The family is evicted and moves near a lake, where their friends help them build a new house. Problems arise when a traveling salesman (Abbott) decides to turn the area into a goose-hunting enterprise. Posing as a conservationist, he gives

Keith money to feed the geese and thereby lure the flying game to Swiftwater on a regular basis. De Wilde learns of the plan, however, and the geese end up the big winners--but not before Keith is shot and a big town meeting is called. THOSE CALLOWAYS is a moving film, presented without the

sentimentality that marred later Disney live-action features. Keith and the supporting players give strong performances, with Brennan and Wynn providing good comedy relief. The score and Vermont locations add to the film's charm.
