Look Who's Washed Up in Hawaii!
5 December 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Wayward Texas cowboy James Garner (as Lincoln Costain) washes up on the beaches of Hawaii, is taken home by fatherless (hint, hint!) young Eric Shea (as Booton MacAvoy), meets tightly-outfitted single mom Vera Miles (as Henrietta), helps her ward off slimy suitor Robert Culp (as Calvin Bryson), and saves the family's business. The English performers speak to the smiling Hawaiians like they are mentally retarded; apparently, with good reason. Mr. Garner unfavorably compares them to schoolgirls and Ms. Miles notes, "They do like their fun!" One of them is handy with the spear, so Garner better watch his back!

**** The Castaway Cowboy (8/1/74) Vincent McEveety ~ James Garner, Eric Shea, Vera Miles, Robert Culp
