Speakin' of chasers, I saw you two goin' after Shoshone a while back. How'd your new tactics work?
Same as the old ones... he got away.
Instead of offerin' a five hundred dollar reward for catchin' that mustang, the cattleman's association oughta make if five thousand. Nobody'd ever collect.

I did not know that this movie existed until happening upon it on AMC. It was very pleasant to see Joel McCrea back in action. His performance is enough to recommend this film. The scenery, mostly filmed in Banff National Park from what I can gather, is an equally pleasing costar to McCrea. There is much filler footage of animals doing animal actor tricks which is silly and distracting. At these points the movie feels like a sub-par Disney nature film, but the main story line of McCrea's aging rancher out to capture a wild mustang and bonding with a young American Indian orphan in the process is a nice story that rises above the lame moments.
If you like Joel McCrea, spectacular Rocky Mountain scenery, or are in the mood for a straightforward family Western this film may be of interest to you.
