-Comment: Tommy Rettig (“Lassie (1954)” acting in this quite rare movie. Clothes appear very modern for a Western, obviously black cotton but no jeans. Also other clothes at a funeral. A good bedroom scene with him (soon on my bedroom blog).

This is one of the few Western movies I still have (partly) on a DVDr from a TV recording. I think the movie isn’t yet officially on DVD, although there are some offers (DVDr, MOD?). Update: There’s now an official German DVD release.

I haven’t rechecked the complete movie yet, but I remember many scenes with him and his film mom also including romantic scenes (embracing), mainly at the end of course. Much more famous is without doubt “River of No Return” (1954) starring Marilyn Monroe and Robert Mitchum (coming soon, rating 9 or 10).

Very handsome actor, so rating 8 for now. But needs for rechecking for other scenes and (supporting) actors. I don’t remember riding scenes with him. So a typical mother/son plot.
