If Cora/Barbara Stanwyck had lice, the reason given for her cropped hair, her son would have had lice, too, due to all the direct contact between them. Probably, half the tribe (at least) would have contracted lice, and yet she was the only one with the cropped hair. See more »
Joel Mccrea at his best.I recorded this off the tmc channel recently on a dvr. The dvr went bad so I lost the show.I have tried to find this movie everywhere and it is not available. What a shame this treasure is lost to so many. The little boy Terry Lawrence was so very good. No one could have played that part better. Lynn Stalmaster in my opinion was the best at casting that ever was. You could depend on the actors doing a good job if he picked them for it. Everyone in this show is superb.A very realistic show without going into the sordid details of todays movies.I am an adult and I know what happened. Don't need to see it.I like good endings without the hero's getting killed. I watch movies to be entertained not depressed and this one fills the bill.
