A western with a moral to the story
5 July 2004 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

The film may seem dated now, I haven't seen it since 1953 when I was spending the summer in Topeka, Kansas with my Dad dying in the VA Hospital that same summer. Mom took my brother and myself for a break, one hot summer day, and this movie's story has not left my memory yet. Wish I could locate a VHS or DVD of it, but I'm guessing it is not available and may never be, so it will just have to remain a sweet memory of long ago.

My brother and I still bring up the subject of insisting on a bowl of strawberries when we are asking for the impossible. We both know what it means, but others who have not seen the movie think we are little daft, of course.
