14-year-old Kurt Russell plays Jamie, an orphaned boy heading westward with a wagon train. Charles Bronson is a wagon scout Linc Murdock, who runs into difficulties when he meets old flame Maria (Susan Oliver), who is now married to corrupt lawman Rance Macklin (Jan Merlin). The jealous Macklin has Murdock arrested, but Maria frees him, permitting Murdock and Jamie to embark on a new adventure involving a "lost" gold mine. Written by

This is actually a couple of episodes of the short-lived TV series "The Travels Of Jaimie McPheeters" edited together. Though the production values are decent, it never quite shakes the TV feel it has.
It's not terrible at all - just rather ordinary, with not much excitement and a lot of chat. However, there is definite interest in seeing a young Kurt Russell, especially seeing him with Bronson. Bronson fans might get more enjoyment out of this, because he plays a different character than the usual hard-ass he played. He even has a love scene, which is surprisingly revealing for the period - hard to believe they got away with it on American TV in the early '60s!
