Ruby Silver is a fine film and full of surprises, too
31 March 2014 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Newish widow Rebecca (Kay Rainey) and her son, Matt (Jonathan Jackson) are living in the Montana wilderness, where their newly deceased husband and father was a would-be silver miner. Left with little money, Rebecca longs to move back to civilized Baltimore, where her roots are. But, alas, she can't at this moment. Then, all of a sudden, Tommy Towne (John Schneider) appears with a proposition that could land her the means. He, Tommy, wants Rebecca and Matt to come work for him, as a cook and helper, as he tries to re-open an abandoned mine, The Ruby Silver, which is in an even MORE remote area. An older, more experience male miner will be helping them, too. If they should strike precious silver, they can all split the profits. At first, Rebecca is reluctant to join the group or allow her son to do so. After all, a mining accident was responsible for her hubby's death. But, the money is too difficult to resist, particularly when offered by a handsome gent like Tommy. So, off they go. Almost at once, the truck Becky drives nearly falls off a mountain. The climb to the abandoned mine is arduous, too. Once there, they all cross their fingers and hope for the best. But, in truth, is Mr. Towne totally on the up and up? In addition, is he playing with Rebecca's affections? This is a fine adventure film, one the family can enjoy. Yet, it has a surprise ending, which will jolt the viewer who expected a happy finale for all. Yet, on reflection, the ending is satisfying. Also, the scenery is breathtaking, very beautiful indeed, and the story full of energy. Try to seek the movie at the usual venues; don't wait to stumble upon it, like I did!
