Storyline

Millionaire Paul Leland is pushed off his private train car and left stranded in the desert where The Virginian finds him on the verge of dying. The Virginian is driving a herd of cattle to Washington for higher prices to save the ranchers in Medicine Bow. He is on a tight schedule to beat the California herds and has no time, men, or supplies to cater to Leland's demands. Leland further feels the wrath of a man put out of a job when Leland closed a stage line through the area. He is forced to work as the cook's helper and tries to hire men to escape the drive but is unsuccessful. His ire causes a stampede destroying supplies and injuring four men including Hogy, the cook, who has tried to help him. When he is forced then to work as a cow puncher, he starts to take ownership of the job and a desire to see it done right. When the drive is over, Leland still has an issue to settle with The Virginian. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Paul Leland: Why are you guys pushin' yourselves so hard?
Hogy: 'Cause there's a need for it, that's why. You think I took this job just for the dollar a day? No, sir! See them cattle yonder. Them cows all belong to some people that I call friends. It's been a tough year in the cattle business an' if we don't get this herd to Seattle before them California cattle hit the market, there's a lot of them people that's gonna go under. That's why men and time are important.

High quality at low cost
6 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Invigorating yarn manages big scale on a limited budget, reflecting the expertise of director William Witney, a past master at making chicken salad out of questionable ingredients. The plot is baldly lifted from Kipling's Captains Courageous, except that the rich, spoiled, bad boy overdue for tough love is changed to a rich, spoiled, very bad man. Plutocrat Paul Leland (played by Linden Chiles) wallows in his cocoon of privilege, cozily certain that the world is for sale and he's got the price. Script's hopeful contention that hard knocks can awaken the humanity in even a snob as big as Leland is at least a thought worth holding. Gregarious Slim Pickens, long before his famous campfire scene in "Blazing Saddles," plays the cattle drive cook.
