The Bears & I (1997)."If he dies, it is the will of the great spirit."

This week, common sense and logic take a back seat to this determined veteran and his gaggle of bears. Do bears bring bad omens? Does alcohol fix everything? So many questions we paddle our way through in this film The Bears and I from 1974. 


Storyline :A man seeking peace and quiet finds himself father to three bears.

Directors: Bernard McEveety

Awards: None

Film Budget: Unknown

Gross Worldwide: $273,156


This movie is so obscure this is honestly the only thing we could find on it.


He left a troubled world to find himself...but found adventure to last a lifetime!

  1. The paperback he's seen reading on the first night the cubs are in the cabin is Agatha Christie's Passenger to Frankfurt. Unfortunately for him, it's widely regarded as her worst novel.

  2. Valentin de Vargas appeared in Hellfighters (1968) and Hatari! (1962) with Patrick Wayne's father John Wayne, six years earlier and twelve years earlier, respectively.

  3. As the opening disclaimer reads: The movie has been modified from it's original version. It has been edited for content. Probably some language, scenes of smoking and racism against American Natives has been cut. Also violence against animals would be possible edited out. There are no comparison sources available.


We were absolutely shocked that this movie was available on Disney+
