Great show to watch
26 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

As much as Chad Stone was "in charge of this outfit", he did two honorable acts - he spared Ben's life when he did not have to, and he tried to see to it that his lovely wife Willa is taken care of.

One truly unfortunate goof - after Ben is "reclaimed" for the ransom, the boys ride back to the mine. As Little Joe (ever the show off, often annoying) swings his right leg over the horse's head, Joe makes a mistake and kicks the horse's head with his boot. Ouch! I am surprised that they did not cut the scene.
