I remember seeing a few of these animal films as a kid. I'm grown up now, but I still had interest in purchasing these films when I found them. I have always had a fondess of animals and I find these disney versions quite attractive. The music and stories are enjoyable. Also, sometimes they can be pretty funny. Disney's True Life Adventures are some of best animal films ever made. These, I would say, are must have for any animal lover.
the dvd's are excellent. Disney does such a great things with their movies out of the vault. The dvd's are in what looks like an old movie can. Disney was so way ahead of his time. Imagine what he would do with today's technology.
I bought this DVD because, I like wild life stories. They bring out things one
would never see in the wild. It took them many years to make, but only a few hours to watch. Everything was great about this film, but the matter of evolution. I'm glad to own all the programs aired by Disney. Today they are as fresh as they were then. If anyone loves nature shows, then these will be a
great to go.
First released in the early '50s to the public's delight, these nature documentaries were unique in their lively, fictional narrative approach to the subjects' lives, which were recreated with anthropomorphic humor and zest. Even today, and maybe more so, hearing that beavers in Beaver Valley are "always stubborn, always persistent," or that the crayfish shovel mud like "miniature bulldozers" is heartening, reminding one that Disney is The Magical Kingdom. Even more heartening is it that these scientific films, made with the latest cameras and technology, were filmic landmarks, and contain footage that David Attenborough's film crews would only dream of getting; in Mysteries of the Deep, a dolphin gives birth and there are views of coral reef that may not even exist anymore. White Wilderness takes one through the Arctic tundra, a "world of frozen chaos," showing majestic animals alongside the lemming, with their strange, suicidal tendency to jump off cliffs. This DVD has an entire second disc of extras, including Volume One's, highlight: The Crisler Story, a behind-the-scenes look at the Crislers, a couple whose arduous trips to Alaska to film migrating caribou included building their own hut, growing veggies, and living amongst wolves and grizzlies. Also in the extras are interviews with other directors, like Beaver Valley's Elma Milotte and Lloyd Beebe of White Wilderness, to shed light upon these long lost classics. For those who love both scientifically enlightening nature films and fairy tales, True Life Adventures are perfectly balanced to please as much one's sense of fun as one's love of information.
Part of the Disney True life adventure series, that I grew up watching Sunday evenings on The Wonderful World of Disney. Some of the more famous titles include, The Vanishing Prairie and the Living Desert. If you love the Disney classics and remember these show from the 1950's and 60's this is a must have. I am planning on sharing these memories with my grandchildren.
