Cute romance
18 February 2003 | by Python3955See all my reviews

For a movie made in 1948, this one is on par. Rowdy son of a rancher, returns after his father passes, with intentions on selling the ranch, but only after he captures the "white outlaw" a wild steed, he remembers from his youth.

Fireworks start immediatly, between him and the foreman, who happens to be a woman, who can rope, ride and shoot with the best of the men.

I was surprised to find this to be in color, and the scenery of the Canadian Rockies didn't dissappoint me.

The story line may have been a bit sappy, but not for the time it was made, and I have always been a sucker for a romantic western.
