When her husband dies en route to America, Martha Price and her daughter Hilary are left to carry out his dream: the introduction of Hereford cattle into the American West. They enlist Sam "Bulldog" Burnett in their efforts to transport their lone bull, a Hereford named Vindicator, to a breeder in Texas, but the trail is fraught with danger and even Burnett doubts the survival potential of this "rare breed" of cattle.

Looking carefully at the shots of Vindicator, he seems seems to be lacking two important parts of his anatomy needed for reproduction. See more »

What on earth are they doing?
It's called bulldogging, ma'am. That's Bulldog Burnett. He works for my outfit.
Well, it's a perfectly silly way to handle cattle if you ask me.

Director Andrew V. McLaglen takes an original story by western writer Ric Hardman and set out to mix history with southwestern lore. A young girl and her mother (Juliet Mills and Maureen O'Hara), travel from England to Texas with their prize Hereford Bull to Crossbreed a new species. Along the way they meet Sam Burnett (James Stewart) who plans to deceive them. The Bull is suppose to go to Alexander Bowen (Brian Keith) who has other plans. To help his scheme is Deke Simons (Jack Elam) and Jeff Harter (Ben Johnson). The movie is set in the old west and there is plenty of spacious open range for all things western. Such things as horses, Cowboys, fistfights, rough-an-tumble mayhem, free-for-all, wild gun play, rugged frontier life and free-range Long-horn Cattle. Together, the entire film is a tribute to a good yarn and should stand up well as a good movie for the entire family. Easily recommended to any seeking a movie of frontier life in the early west. ****
