Back in 1937, when Lord Attenborough was just a wee lad in shorts, he saw a wildlife lecture given by the half Scottish, half native Canadian Indian Archie Grey Owl. Such was the impression that this charismatic trapper-turned-environmentalist made on the young boy ­ and audiences throughout Britain and Canada, where he lived in the wilderness ­ 63 years later Attenborough made an adventure film about Belaney with 007's Brosnan in the lead. Attenborough's back on his favoured, if well trod ground ­ biographical films about heroic men, see also 'Gandhi' and 'Cry Freedom' - with another handsomely filmed solidly told tale.
