Storyline

Toni lives with her father, writer Matthew Martin, in the Sequoia forests of California. While walking, she finds and brings home, a small puma which she calls 'Gato' and a young fawn, called 'Malibu'. The three become friends which violates the normal rules of nature. After a few years, Toni and her dad leave and Gato and Malibu are returned to the wild. They do their animal things, but the two are still friendly. When Toni and Matthew return, they find that logging and hunting have decimated the animals in the area. They also find that their neighbor, Bergman, who has trapped animals for years, is now leading hunting parties and kills even the fawns. It is up to Gato and Malibu if they are to survive.

Wildlife adventure Story
12 December 2005 | by gagarhSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in the late 40's and it was a favorite of mine. I have remembered it vividly all of my life and I am desperate to find a copy of it. It was one of Jean Parkers best films.The story is about a girl living near a national park raising a fawn and mountain lion together.She tries to protect them from hunters.It's a very touching story and good for children.Although black and white, the scenery is terrific and the ability to get the fawn and the mountain lion together in the film is amazing. I also admired her courage in standing up to the hunters.The film has some good values to teach children.It was reissued years later as "Malibu".Has anyone found it?
