What on earth are they doing?
It's called bulldogging, ma'am. That's Bulldog Burnett. He works for my outfit.

Curious western handled in cartoony fashion: it's all fired-up, though it ultimately misfires. Fiesty Brit Maureen O'Hara and daughter Juliet Mills bring a royal bull for breeding to Old West America, where both ladies wind up with suitors. Capable cast holds interest but, despite some pleasurable moments, Andrew V. McLaglen's perplexing direction is way over-the-top. The screenplay by Ric Hardman keeps all the characters spouting off and hopping mad, turning the movie into a western parody (culminating in a laughable blizzard sequence which McLaglen stages on a set--with the results looking far worse than the typical blue-screen effect). O'Hara juggles the affections of both James Stewart (completely rote) and Brian Keith (hamming with abandon as a wild-eyed Scotsman). She was better off with the bull. ** from ****
