A box contain the story of a man's life.
3 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This story could have been taken right out of situations that happen in today's society as we get a poor homeless man living his last days on earth when a rumor causes family member to all of the sudden come out of the woodwork to support their dying kin.

Everyone calls the man Crowbait Bob. No one in Dodge actually knows his name but have just seen him around town basically living a beggar's life. Crowbait has just return from prospecting for gold and has taken a turn for the worse. Doc advises that he only has a few days to live and Crowbait ask Marshal Dillon to write him a Will. The only thing he has in his life is a locked metal box that he lives to Kitty. It seems that Kitty had been feeding Crowbait for the last few years and he wants to leave her something.

Well, a rumor gets out that some people have struck gold near where Crowbait was prospecting and people begin to surmise that the metal box is filled with gold. Well, after not even speaking to Crowbait in five years, his sister and brother in-law arrive wanting to help their poor kinfolk and are appalled to find their love one is giving all his worldly possessions to a saloon girl.

Another wonderful story that is played out even today. An interesting story that was entertaining to the very end. The viewer must stay to when the box is finally opened and see the collections of a man's life plus the greed of so-called family members. As a song by Cyndi Lauper use to say, "Money changes everything'".
