Veteran Actors & A Kid Provide Good Mix
5 September 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Veteran actors Ralph Bellamy, Gloria Talbot and James Garner star in this strange story which has a good mix of action and melodrama. I also saw afterward in the closing credits that "Dick" Farnsworth and Beverly Wasburn - more well-known names to classic film and TV buffs - were also in it.

Farnsworth, better known as Richard, had a line or two at the very end and I would never have recognized his face or voice. This was one of his first "credited" roles. Washburn was much more of a child actress, doing a number of famous TV show appearances and must have been befriended by Loretta Young, who had the youngster on many of her shows.

Anyway, Bellamy, Talbot and Garner form the bulk and a strange "triangle" in this story, which features quite a bit of action. Garner's role is particularly interesting and he seems to be the one to watch in this story. Is he a good guy or a bad guy? Stay tuned.

In addition to all this, host Dick Powell presents his normal entertaining-and-informative introduction, telling us all about the uncomfortable covered wagon, which was the "schooner of the West."
