Teenager Ben Mockridge feels life in a Wild West farm town has nothing better to offer than horse-cart racing with other hicks, so he naively begs cattle company owner Frank Culpepper to engage him as the youngest cowboy for a long cattle trail to a fort. His mother barely notices. Ben doesn't even seem to get it when he's told to report as 'little Mary' to the old cook, whose words, "Cowboy is something you do only if you have nothing better." gradually become clear.

This movie has not been on DVD but needs to be. I have not seen it in so long I have forgotten details to give enough to make your heart pound and your eyes bulge. If you want a good western this is it bar none. The rustic setting, clothing, attitudes, and general demeanor make the film. I was so impressed with this movie I have waited for it on DVD for years and have never seen it come to DVD. I have even looked for it on Laserdisc I never saw it. If someone is listening that can get it on DVD please do ORIGINAL FORMAT WIDESCREEN PLEASE. This is one of the most realistic rough and tumble westerns it almost makes you feel you are in the 1800's. If it comes out on DVD I will be glad to give a fresh review. It has been 10-20 years since I have seen it last but I still remember it as one of the greatest, if not the greatest western ever. I love the Duke and his movies but this may even surpass his movies.
