Carefree Chuck Connor is on his way west and stops off to see an old friend and his four lads. When his host is killed in a riding accident Chuck realises he must take care of the family. They hit the road and he takes a job on a ranch, but he has to keep the children hidden as his boss hates kids. There's also tension with the neighbouring ranch, and when a girl on the run from her nasty uncle joins the family unannounced Chuck wonders what he has done to deserve all this. Written by

A family type western from Hollywood's most underrated cowboy, Joel McCrea. Here he gives up a footloose, carefree life to care for four homeless boys and a run-away girl (Hendrix). It's a low-key little scenic drama, with little gunplay, but one heck-uv-a knock-down drag- out fist fight. Somebody's stealing cattle from Connor's (McCrea) employer and it looks like it's his Mexican neighbor, but is it. Connor gets mixed up in the feud, like it or not.
McCrea delivers one of his typically likable low-key performances. There's not an ounce of swagger or ego to Connor, but you know his character qualities are solid and he'll come through when he needs to. This is not every western fans cup of tea, but it is both offbeat and entertaining thanks to the sterling Joel McCrea.
