I do not think it was in 58, to early for Landon. There was a Disney movie about a young boy in a wheel chair with homers, i have not seen it since i was a small boy. (and i am OLD!) lol! Dave P.S. i also would love a copy, if it is the one i am thinking about.

60's are you stark, raving mad? Nobody get's to see the 60's movie. Becauce it was'nt even made then.
the movie you are looking for was actually made in 1958 and and was called " The Pigeon That Worked a Miracle" based on a book called "Pigeon Fly Home" by Thomas Liggett


The Pigeon That Worked a Miracle: Disneyland (TV Episode)

TV Episode: Disneyland: The Pigeon That Worked a Miracle

Home > Library > Entertainment & Arts > TV EpisodesDirector: Walter Perkins
Main Cast: Bradley Payne, Whitney Davenport, George Fenneman
Release Year: 1958
Run Time: 60 minutes
Plot
Co-produced by Walt Disney and Perkins Films, this episode of Walt Disney Presents was based on the book Pigeon Fly Home by Thomas Liggett. This is the story of a young boy named Chad (Bradley Payne), who after sustaining an injury in a ball game is confined to a wheelchair. The doctors are convinced that Chad's paralysis is merely psychosomatic, borne of a deep-rooted fear of failure, but nothing seems to arouse Chad enough to try to use his legs. All this changes when the boy emerges from his self-imposed shell by adopting a new hobby: raising and training pigeons. And it is, of course, one of these pigeons, a mere baby at the beginning of the story, who ultimately leads to the "miracle" of Chad's recuperation. "The Pigeon That Worked a Miracle" was released theatrically overseas in 1962, the same year that the episode was rebroadcast on Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

I saw the taill end of a Lassie (the dog) black and white TV show on TV in Antwerp, Belgian recently. Don't recall if it was on BBC or on a Flemish station with Flemish (Dutch) subtitles.

It was pretty nice. Lassie has a pigeon for a friend. Pigeon rescues another pigeon stuck in some kind of swamp/quicksand pool. Nice scenes of pigeons.

I'll keep a look-out for pigeon movies and videos and whatnot available over here.
