Smokey Banks used to be one of the greatest bull riders in rodeo. But for the last few years this has-been cowboy has been riding the bookie and the bottle more, and taking a far worse beating than any bull ever delivered. Now, through a strange and sudden set of events, he is given an option : go to jail, or be a cowboy teacher at a Boy's Ranch. Saddled with a dozen young boys wild as any bull he ever faced, his mission was simple: teach young Danny (Brock Pierce) how to ride a bull. Very reluctantly, Smokey agrees, not realizing that Danny will be far more of a teacher to him than he ever dreamed. Written by
This is one of the best movies made since the censors stopped "sensing" that can be viewed and loved by the whole family. It ranks alongside such family classics as "Lassie Come Home" and "20,000 Leagues under the Sea," but this is no fantasy. It is set in modern times and focuses on a wayward cowboy and the influence he has on a boy faced with a life-threatening illness. There's more drama than action here, but this movie will touch your heart. It would be a great addition to a family library or even a church library with its Christian principles.
