Storyline

Tom Reed's adaptation of the "Saturday Evening Post" story by Eli Colter finds Texas wrangler Tom Kilpatrick persuading the ranchers of the Pecos area, led by John Rambeau, to buy a Brahma bull on a cooperative basis to improve their depleted cattle strain. The bull escapes, due to the carelessness of Windy Lucas. The mishap is seen by Larch Keegan, young rancher in love with Cherry Lucas, Windy's adopted daughter. Larch, jealous of Tom as a rival for Cherry and for water rights, fixes the blame on the wrangler. The bull terrorizes the countryside, injuring farm women and killing other bulls. Larch and his brothers, Hoy and Happy, incite the ranchers to shoot the bull on sight, but Tom begs for time to capture it alive. Tom corners and lassos the bull in the hills, but his horse is no match for the bull, who escapes again. Tom then sets out to capture the Widow Maker, a famous wild horse, knowing the horse is the only one capable of holding the lassoed bull. He does so and trains the ...

Pleasantly Offbeat
11 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Easy-going Western, not to be taken too seriously (catch the amusing barroom brawl). Even the bad guys aren't really bad, more ornery than anything else. In fact the real bad guy is a rampaging brahma bull, too strong to catch. (Why don't they use some female cows to corral him.)

Anyway, Tufts makes a pleasant good guy who brings the breeding bull to Pecos Valley to improve the stock. Trouble is the rogue bovine gets loose and runs wild. Worse for Wrangler (Tufts), the ornery Keegan brothers resent him, especially after lovely Cherry (Britton) prefers him to Larch Keegan (Bishop).

Great Lone Pine scenery with snowy Sierras in the background. One notable feature —Gabby Hayes figures into the plot as a kind of bad guy (!), at the same time, he manages some of his usual gruff comedy relief. All in all, the movie's a rather pleasant, offbeat little Western, better than I expected.

(In passing—one reason I watched was to catch the legendary Sonny Tufts as a cowboy, of all things. Actually, he does well enough, keeping basically within his nice-guy range. Check out his bio and discussion to find out why his name became something of a joke for many years.)
