The Adventures of the Wilderness Family was among the first-and the most successful-of the family-oriented films of the 1970s. Robert F. Logan plays a city-dwelling construction worker who decides to kick over the traces and head to the mountains. His family-wife Susan Damante Shaw, children Holleye Holmes and Ham Larsen-are at first resistant, but soon they learn to love the Great Outdoors as much as Logan. The film's highlights include an up-close-and-personal confrontation with a hungry bear. Successfully released on a city-by-city, limited-run basis all over the US, The Adventures of the Wilderness Family was popular enough to spawn two sequels.
