In 1939, former New York City stock broker Richmond Hobson, a man with a privileged past, has become a cowboy, which is his dream job. With his partner, an experienced but sarcastic cowpoke named Panhandle Phillips, Rich has a three-year old fledgling ranch in northern British Columbia near Vanderhoof. Beyond the grief he gets from local banker Roland Tewkesbury who wants to ruin Rich so that he can buy the land for a pittance, Rich may be facing difficult times with the onset of the war. Of late, he has been having dreams of an unknown beautiful blond woman. His dreams become reality when he spots her. She is headstrong Gloria McIntosh, a Vancouver aspiring débutante who is the dream girl of many a man in her own social circle, most specifically Connor McCann. But Gloria is literally swept off her feet by first sight of the mysterious cowboy. Impetuously, they get married as Gloria is willing to give up her current life to become a rancher's wife, something about which she knows ... Written by Huggo

A Cowgirl's Work Is Never Done
4 January 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

As World War II is breaks out in Europe, transplanted New York City cowboy Chad Willett (as Richmond "Rich" Hobson) and his partner Ted Atherton (as Panhandle "Ted" Phillips) try to run a cattle ranch in Canada. The war takes its toll on investors and personnel, but the men persevere. It's not all business when Mr. Willett locks eyes with pretty blonde Sarah Chalke (as Gloria McIntosh) at a Vancouver party. Willett tells Mr. Atherton that Ms. Chalke is the "dream girl" he has been wishing to meet. She's engaged to one man and desired by many, but Willett wins her attention...

This irks Atherton, who doesn't want his pal to settle down (long-term) a woman. They hire teenagers Zachary Bennett (as Ed Kroger) and Ryan Gosling (as Tommy Aitkens) to work on the ranch. The secretive, mysterious Mairon Bennett (as Kit Kroger) and Falconer Abraham (as Robert McDaniels) add subplots. The story is weak, but the characters good. The main conflict becomes a question about whether Chalke will be accepted by Atherton as a ranch worker.
