ABOUT ‘HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS’

On their way home to Seattle from a camping trip, the Hendersons accidentally run over a strange and unknown creature. Realizing it might be the legendary Bigfoot creature, they strap it to the roof of their station wagon and take it home because they felt bad. Once there, the revived creature goes wild, rampaging throughout the house. Eventually, the family realizes that the creature is actually very gentle. Given the name “Harry”, the creature’s curiosity leads him to escape, running through the city as sightings of him strike fear into the populace (and greed into the heart of one French Canadian bounty hunter). Trying to hide Harry from the Seattle authorities and the hunter who wants his hide, the Hendersons with a help of an elderly once disillusioned and embittered ex-scientist and Bigfoot-believer Dr. Wrightwood come to realize that the best thing for Harry is to return him to his home in the wilderness.

 

“Harry and the Hendersons” is a 1987 American comedy film directed and produced by William Dear, and starring John Lithgow, Melinda Dillon, Lainie Kazan and Don Ameche.
