Good fun.
23 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed the four orphan boys and also the strong woman characterized by the rancher's wife. I also liked the message(s) of the movie. Simple but true.

1. We have to make something of ourselves.

2. The treacherous divides the good and gets them to fight against themselves while the bad rob them blind.

It was a wonderful story and of course it is from sixty plus years ago so its not going to work for everybody. You have to be in the right mood and not worry about corny and enjoy the ride.

The last two comments talk about creepiness and I need to balance that out. This movie was made when on screen kisses were forbidden. Compared to what passes for prime time family entertainment today of course this super innocent. The issue the comments are referring two is the age difference between the 19 year old "runaway" and the Main character being 15 or twenty years older. Well news flash kids you are living in very different times. What you call creepy was actually a completely common experience not only in the American west but throughout much of the world over for hundreds if not thousands of years.

The reason for the young woman's flight from home was referenced in an innocuous way so that young audiences would have little chance of clueing in to her reasons while the rest of us would know damn well while she left the real "creep".

Hey this is a great family movie and something for kids to see.
