Great Family Western
11 August 2017 | by PrairieCalSee all my reviews

If you enjoy family westerns, chances are you'll love this movie. The scenery and acting are great and the story totally engaging.

Although not as great as Louis L'Amour's novel, this is a wonderful family western. I'm not sure why Hollywood thinks they must "improve" on a novel in transferring it to film. Perhaps sometimes they feel a story needs more human interest ... or sometimes the story changes they make could be due to saving money. In any event it's very rare to find a film version that lives up to it's origins. Nevertheless this is a wonderful movie both western fans and families alike will enjoy.

Although filmed in Utah, both the film and the book take place in Wyoming Territory as the repeated references to Fort Bridger testify. It is well worth watching and will be enjoyed by many.

I found this on Youtube and downloaded it free. The sound and picture quality weren't bad at all.
