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

Nay-sayers there are many... but I feel this is one of Charlie Bronson's best western flicks (much better than that long, tired, over-rated "Once Upon a Time in the West"). Bronson plays a mentor to a young Kurt Russell. Taking the boy into town one day, Bronson comes face to face with a woman... and some dangerous men... from his past. Very sexy flashback sequence (how did that one ever get past the censors in 1964???)... as well as copious amounts of gunplay and fisticuffs! The final showdown scene is a classic... much more exciting than anything that hack Sergio Leone could ever come up with. This film was ripe for a sequel... because the wagon train that Bronson was a part of never did get to its final destination. I'd like to know if they ever made it!
