Storyline

Danny, son of a wealthy family, is running away from home. He meets Bix, a long-time drifter, who agrees to "mentor" Danny. Danny's naivete leads him to commit gaffe after gaffe, leaving Bix to straighten things out. But when they stop in a diner in the next town, Bix finds himself attracted to the waitress, Carrie, and is forced to reexamine his whole drifting career. Meanwhile, Jesse (Jack Elam) goes around creeping everyone out. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

The start of a great bromance.
30 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film is about the fun of being a drifter, while not really drifting all that much. The film has a young man, named Danny riding the rails. Well actually he is about to get mugged at the beginning of the film and so starts his amazing adventure as he soon meets up with a guy named Bix. Bix seems to be an all right fellow as he could have taken the young man's wallet and cash, but instead teaches a valuable lesson. The young Danny begs Bix to tag along with him to show him the ways of the drifter and they soon embark on a wonderful adventure drifting. Actually, they arrive at this one town and kind of stay there the rest of the film. It is a small town too, but even though it is a small town there is a nice brothel and a local pool hall where if you have money you are going to get taken down. Seriously, life was rather difficult back then, granted there are muggings and such now too, but you can usually walk around with money and not get an automatic mugging. Well the reason they stay in this town for the entire movie is that there is a cute gal working at the café and she likes Bix. Which surprised me, I thought the main character of the flick was going to be young Danny, but he turns out to be more of a side note to the movie. He is important, but really as just a kind of plot device to show what a swell guy Bix can be as Bix not only gets him out of trouble time and again he also tells Danny of the hard life he led. The movie is blessedly short, and not all that bad compared to other movies I have seen on Mystery Science Theater 3000. The end is sort of a surprise, but not so much because of what happened to the female love interest for Bix. Saw that coming, just not how it ended with Bix and Danny. The film though is rather unremarkable in plot, perhaps a couple of more towns visited would have helped the film out. As it stands, this film just feels like looking at to average drifters going about their daily lives. And since when is a drifter coming into town a super prospect at being a boyfriend? That town must have been very limited in selection to be sure.
