***Watch Johnny Tremain With Your Family***
Stardate: 1301.8

Posted on 01/08/2013 5:09:58 PM PST by The Wizard

If you have never heeded my posts, I ask you to heed this one....

Years ago Walt Disney produced this great movie explaining liberty, and in the newly released DVD it includes special segments where uncle Walt himself explained liberty, what it means, why it is important and why it must be defended....

Not only you, but your children will understand it's lessons, and if many of us will die fighting this criminal bama, then it will fall to our children to understand why he is wrong and we and the founders where right....

Take this gift from Walt Disney himself to explain why they will have to carry on when we are gone....why what America is, is different than any other country, and why it must be restored and rescued from these criminals....

I remember when this played on Uncle Walt’s show (when I was much much younger). I loved it. It made me want to read the book and find out more.....the rest as they say is history

it is a simple movie that reflects American values unlike the current Disney Company.....this was a different time, and Walt was still here....he loved this country, and the message of this film, “Johnny Tremain” will be understood by any age.....and you, my fellow Freepers will agree will all that is said....

This was required reading in some of our sixth or seventh grade classes. I never read it, but I got hooked on Kenneth Roberts novels. They are outstanding.

I was assigned to read it in school. I loved it and still remember some of it many decades later. I should track down a copy!

Somehow I doubt kids in Massachusetts today are being assigned to read Johnny Tremain. More likely they are being given Commie Dreams from My Deadbeat Dad or some such trash.

I cannot imagine the Disney Company of today ever airing such a patriotic film.....today’s Disney ABC promotes teen age sex and romance and has no clue to what Walt believed in......

Johnny Tremain explains why we should fight the dems and bama every day we breath air......every day....Mark Levin would endorse this film.....

As I recall, the young actor who played Johnny Tremaine also played the part of the son on the TV show The Rifleman (starring Chuck Connors).

This was on my required summer reading list back in grade school. I remember my parents bought me a copy and I think I read it several times while growing up. I still remember the picture on the dust jacket.

Walt Disney was a very decent guy, and his company made many excellent, morally positive movies until he died and the bad guys started taking it over.

They still made some good movies, but you could no longer count on them for family values.

Both an excellent book and movie. Read and saw them when I was young and learned about the fight for freedom through the characters in them.

Highly recommend for children as young as 11. Definitely needed in today’s age of “historical deconstruction”.

Disney was a great patriot, esp. during WW2, with his studios helping to win friends in Latin America. Also his movies and cartoons were well done, both in their professional context as well as in their pro-America, pro-freedom messages.

Today we have Quentin Tarantino, Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, and Spike Lee, among others, who make a lot of money attacking the very country that gives them the freedom to make crap, distort history and promote their own brand of hate.

Unfortunately, Walt Disney’s successors at Disney Studios, have turned more to the Left, negating the pro-America stance of a great movie industry giant.

Reading “Johnny Tremain” is a good start for young people in their education to counter the leftist propaganda now flooding the movie screens, air waves, music, and in print.

I see that Amazon is offering a two-movie set of Davy Crockett along with the DVD of Johnny Tremain. Worth getting both together, at a slightly reduced price. I think I’ll order them for my grandchildren to watch.

I saw Davy Crockett when it came out, and I remember I really liked it.

I can’t believe you posted this. Johnny Tremain and the Sons of Liberty have been own my mind lately. I’ve been intending to get the story to my grandkids.

An apparently ever lasting memory goes back to the day I saw it at the movies when I was a single digit midget. I only remember bits of the story. What sticks in my mind is at the end of the movie I thought how great it must have been to be involved in the Revolution and that opportunity was gone forever.

Hey, back then that’s the way things looked.

It was when I was in school so many years ago. I still cringe when I think of Johnny burning his hand on that hot silver.

i highly recommend the audio version of the book... unabridged... it is so well done... it is much deeper than the movie... by the end of the book, we were weeping--just in awe of those early American revolutionaries and everything they sacrificed to establish this country...

I've read this fiction by Roberts:
  1. Arundel (Arnold's march to Quebec. Unbelievable story of privation marching through the Maine swamps and building bateau)
  2. Rabble in Arms (Sequel to Arundel. Picks up after Arnold's attack on Quebec and follows the retreat of the army down the St. Lawrence River to Lake Champlain. Masterful treatment of the Battle of Valcor Island on Lake Champlain which, although a loss for the Americans, slowed the British advance down the lake to connect with the Hudson enough so that they had to return to Canada for the winter of 1776-7. This ultimately lead to the victory at Saratoga the following year.)
  3. Lydia Bailey
  4. Northwest Passage (Major Robert Rogers during the French and Indian War)
  5. Oliver Wiswell (the Revolution from a Loyalist point of view)

I met Walts Bookkeeper (yeah that is what he called himself) and the stories he told, I almost feel like I knew Walt.

Walt was still planning and designing Disney World on his Death Bed... on the Ceiling of his room ... he never quit.
