    Thank you for sharing this movie.
    It’s not a good movie, but a real curiosity
    The script is really stupid as well as the dialogue
    But the scenes with animals (majority of the movie) are really great and more importantly, watch James Stewart for a few minutes in his last movie is worth seeing it
    He’s a real character, a real personality, and also very touching
