He ain't heavy - he's Bobby Sherman
He Is My Brother came out in 1976 and stars Bobby Sherman, Keenan Wynn, and Robbie Rist.
The film, directed by Edward Dmytryk is a tale of two brothers/sole survivors of a shipwreck off the coast of a leper colony run by Brother Dalton played by Keenan Wynn.
Not only do the brothers fear contracting leprosy, but they also quickly become the focus of a power struggle between Dalton and the island's mysterious native ruler who seeks to banish the white devils and their strange new ways. When Jeff (B. Sherman) falls in love with the beautiful Luana, the daughter of the chieftain, she must choose between the past and the future. Before she can though, young Randy (R. Rist) is kidnapped in order to be sacrificed to the gods of a volcano.
Shot on location: Kauai, Hawaii.
Released on DVD by Synergy Entertainment on November 13, 2008
