If seeing young John Wayne and some pretty Mammoth Lakes scenery is enough for you, you'll love it!, 5 December 1999
Author: Dan Phillips from Texas

For me, the movie was (a) poor but (b) fun.

"Poor" because the directing was lame, the dialogue was hard not to chuckle at, the fight-scenes were definitely proto, and the plot meandering.

But still it was "fun" because here was young John Wayne giving it his all, jumping off cliffs, diving into every body of water he could find, and fighting Bad French Guys. And it's fun to see such a young, naive movie, so endearingly but sincerely lame, trying hard to do nothing but entertain. And for me, a lifelong lover of Mammoth Lakes, it was fun to see Crystal Crag, and a shot down at Twin Lakes from below Lake Mamie described as "a bend in the river."

I just wish it had been color!
