High quality at low cost

9/10

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.
