Walt Disney Pictures 1995 fantasy-adventure film, Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventures of Pecos Bill, is a thoroughly effective and entertaining movie, reminiscent of late-50s era Disney adventure classics such as Davy Crockett and Swiss Family Robinson.
Daniel Hackett (Nick Stahl) feels compelled to try and help his father battle greedy capitalists (led by Scott Glenn), who have their eyes on the family farm. Growing up, Daniel was enthralled by tales of mythic characters told to him by his father, and in a fantasy sequence, Daniel actually meets up with such legendary figures as Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan and John Henry.
Given advice by his heroes, Daniel wisely takes heed and uses this knowledge to team with his father and outwit the "wolf at the door."
Director Jeremiah S. Chechik has such films as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and The Avengers on his resume, in addition to the critically-acclaimed ESPN mini-series, The Bronx Is Burning.
