One rebellious state
bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

In this Rawhide story the drovers are in one rebellious state because
Eric Fleming is pushing them beyond endurance with night riding and
little sleep. In fact Clint Eastwood is being offered the role of
Fletcher Christian, but Clint's not having it for now.
Eastwood goes off with Paul Brinegar to town for supplies where they
meet a most unusual character in Mickey Rooney. How they meet is for
you to see, but Brinegar brings him back to the drive.
Mickey is a former circus performer and he manages to make himself
useful in many ways, both tangible and intangible. Let's say the mutiny
sort of dissipates and Mickey goes off on his quest again something I
Rooney is really something special in this story. His performance is
wistful and almost pixieish. His height always lent itself to those
kind of roles, but as we know he could do so much more.
This one is a real treat for fans of the Mick.
