Read our DVD Review of Old Yeller: 2-Movie Collection

BURBANK, Calif., July 29, 2005 - Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents the OLD YELLER TWO MOVIE COLLECTION DVD, featuring “Old Yeller,” one of the greatest family films ever made, plus its sequel “Savage Sam.” Fans will also find a full line-up of bonus features on Old Yeller including the classic animated short “Bone Trouble” and a tour of the Disney Archives.

In OLD YELLER, a friendly stray dog finds his way to the frontier home of Jim Coates (Davy Crockett’s Fess Parker), Katie Coates (Dorothy Maguire, Swiss Family Robinson) and their two boys, Travis (Tommy Kirk, The Shaggy Dog, Swiss Family Robinson) and Arliss (Kevin Corcoran, The Shaggy Dog, Swiss Family Robinson). When Jim leaves home on a cattle drive, the dog, named Old Yeller, proves to be fiercely loyal, saving the boys from danger and protecting the family. When Old Yeller’s own life is gravely threatened, the entire Coates family must pull together in a test of their love. A story of rare beauty, OLD YELLER is classic entertainment for families everywhere.

SAVAGE SAM, the superb sequel to OLD YELLER, continues the story with returning cast members Tommy Kirk and Kevin Corcoran, and introduces Old Yeller’s son, ‘Savage Sam.’ Brothers Travis (Kirk) and Arliss (Corcoran) and their neighbor Lisbeth are kidnapped, and it’s up to Savage Sam to follow their trail. Filled with action and excitement, SAVAGE SAM is Disney family adventure at its best. The film also stars Brian Keith (Disney’s original The Parent Trap) and Jeff York (Disney’s Davy Crockett and the River Pirates).

The OLD YELLER TWO MOVIE COLLECTION is available November 15 for $29.99 (SRP) on 2-disc Disney DVD from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
