Those Calloways is a family drama movie released in 1965. It was directed by Norman Tokar and produced by Walt Disney Productions. The movie tells the story of the Calloway family who live in a small rural town in Vermont. They are a typical American family, trying to make their living by running a living through hunting, trapping, and selling animal furs.

Brian Keith plays the role of Cam Calloway, the head of the family who is passionate about maintaining the family tradition of hunting and trapping. However, he is also aware of the environmental impact of their activities and is trying to find a way to balance the two. Cam's wife Lydia, played by Vera Miles, is supportive of her husband's pursuit but is anxious about the danger involved in it.

Their elder son, Bucky Calloway, portrayed by Brandon De Wilde, is more interested in pursuing his passion for painting, and the family sees him as a talented artist. Despite his passion, Bucky tries to support his family by participating in their hunting and trapping activities. The younger son, Wilse, played by Walter Brennan, is a trapper and hunter just like his father, and he is learning the tricks of the trade from his father.

As the family is planning their hunting season, the local game warden, Harry Whiteagle, played by Frank de Kova, informs them that the forest is now protected, and they can no longer hunt or trap animals in that area. Cam is devastated to learn this news as the forest has been their prime hunting ground for generations. He tries to reason with the authorities to change their decision, but it is fruitless.

Meanwhile, Bucky has found refuge in his painting and has started exploring the beauty of nature through his brush. He becomes more aware of the importance of preserving the environment and comes up with an idea to save the forest. He suggests that they start a campaign to bring national attention to the forest's beauty, and perhaps the government would change their mind.

The family agrees to Bucky's plan, and they start a journey to Washington, D.C. to petition the government to declare the forest as a national park. The journey is not an easy one as they face numerous hurdles, both physical and emotional. However, they are determined to accomplish their goal and save the forest.

The movie is a heartwarming tale of a family's love for each other and the environment. It showcases the importance of preserving the natural beauty of our world and the need for balancing progress with responsible development. The movie has some emotional and tense moments, but overall, it is a family-friendly movie that celebrates the greatness of the human spirit.

In summary, Those Calloways is an inspiring story that will appeal to people of all ages. It is a charming family drama that will leave you with a renewed appreciation for the beauty of nature and the importance of preserving it for future generations.
