The acting is superb with Eric Porter, Bill Travers, Jeremy Kemp and a young Denis Waterman putting in strong performances. The subject of foxhunting is still a contentious issue but the film treads a steady course endeavouring to tell the story of a friendship against the odds without presenting a diatribe for or against hunting. That it succeeds in my opinion is due to the excellent cast and the core strengths of the story. Poignant and moving without being mawkish this film excellent entertainment and has long been overlooked.
I remember a quite nasty scene along the railway in the film which shocked me at the time, and this was definately cut on the video. I have yet to see the dvd, but judging from the previous letter it seems to be still cut. That scene had a huge impact on the film, and to cut it is ridiculous.
The picture itself is a very warming film, with superb acting by all concerned, and yet it seems to have been forgotten.
There are some scenes that even now will upset younger people, and even many older ones.
The story isn't exactly mind blowing, but it's a really beautiful film that once seen, you will never forget. hankies ready while you all watch please
Asher Smith, a Huntsmaster, played by Eric Porter, takes in a young fox after it's mother is killed, and rears it with a pack of dogs, used for hunting foxes! As time goes by, and after the fox and one of the dogs have bonded, he realizes that he may have made a mistake. His initial determination to save the fox, now becomes an obsession to kill it, only to be outwitted every time by the fox.
Picture Quality of this transfer is fair, it could do with being restored, but it is unlikely that this film will ever get that. The outside shots are better than the interior shots. (But this could also be down to the film stock used).
The aspect ratio is in the original 2.35:1. But is not anamorphic, so you will have to zoom the picture out using your tv remote. But unless a blu ray release comes out, this is the only version available, so for now buy this version, and enjoy it.
one of those movies that always stays in the back of your memory banks .
when i saw this for sale i just had to have a copy for myself.
a heartwarming story about an english red fox.
Some scenes are a tad daft, but in the main this has to be in the Top selection of all time Hunting films.
And this new DVD release is first class. Esp for a 40 plus year old Granada film.
Many West Country folk starred in the making, Esp the Meet images.
Lovers of Hounds will be upset by one particular scene but it is necessary to be shown & kept in place for storyline.
Discretion should be used with some viewers.
