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

I was pleasantly surprised by this. I knew beforehand it was a snippet of the series released as a full-length feature, but it plays as a movie very well. The acting was great, some of the best I've seen of Bronson, and Kurt was just as good as the young Jamie. My only complaint is the very low video quality, but it was not enough to stop me from wanting to finish it. I was completely intrigued within the first five or ten minutes. Deserves way more than the 4.9 rating on here.
Strong acting and story, realistic dialog, and neat to see Kurt as a young boy.
