During the "bath on the riverbank" scene, when Royal gets out of the water he wipes his face with a cloth, unfortunately, doing so he also wipes the stage makeup off his nose which ends up bright pink for the rest of the scene. See more »

One of my favorites
9 October 2004 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I love westerns and this is a good one.

The story is about a ranch hand who promises his boss to care for his son and the ranch if anything should happen to him. The boss asks the hand, Roy, to collect his son, who has been at a sanitarium since he was an infant and bring him home to the ranch. Roy finds the boy, who is deaf, at the sanitarium and realizes the mistreatment he has received. He takes the boy and the boy's friend (an Indian woman who has watched over him) back to the ranch. Upon returning to the ranch Roy learns that the boss, the boys father, has died. Roy must now make decisions about what to do next. To add to the complications, the banker, who wants to purchase the ranch, is also trying to foreclose on the ranch. The story proceeds as Roy tries to save the ranch and learns to love the boy, the ranch, and the English woman who shows up looking for a job.

The actors are wonderful and many will recognize them as actors from the Avonlea series, both being Sullivan Entertainment productions. The deaf son is played by Shawn Ashmore, some may know him from X-Men. The music is lovely and fitting to the story. The country it is filmed in is scenic. If you like Sullivan Entertainment productions this film will not disappoint you.

If you would like to purchase the DVD, you may do so at the Sullivan Entertainment Web sight. They have other Sullivan favorites there as well.

I am so happy I now have this on DVD. I never get tired of watching this movie.
