I saw it during 1955, it was so good it has stuck in my mind.
11 December 2000 | by (Nevada) – See all my reviews

An excellent family-quality story. Kipling's "Captains Courageous" reset in a Western. Excellent performance by Stockwell as a spoiled kid that makes good. I hope that Universal can be persuaded to release this movie on video.
