Very ordinary Western.
4 November 2004 | by (Lincolnshire England) – See all my reviews

I couldn't get over the fact that the piglet never got any bigger throughout the film.

Also the sod hut grew remarkably quickly and where did all the wood come from?

A very predictable plot, with everything too clean and tidy but that was normal for Westerns made in that era. A waste of time .

Easily forgettable Better to wash the car. Did we really want films like that in the 60's
