-Comment: 14 or 15 yo Tommy Rettig (1941-1996, Lassie) in a medium / light blue suit and hat. Very light blue or similar,  almost white shirt and medium blue pants almost appearing like jeans but probably matching the jacket. Also some other younger boys in dark blue western clothes including hats (pic 2).

Several good scenes, most interesting in the first half of the movie (both pics. Without the jacket scenes near the end of the movie).

I like handsome Tommy Rettig (River of No Return, rating 10, At Gunpoint (1955), rating 8). But somehow I don’t like his clothes here and don’t like this western/romance/wagon train movie.

Directed by Delmer Daves (3:10 to Yuma (1955)). The remake coming soon.

Rating 5-6.

I forgot that there are 1 or 2 swimming scenes (kids in the river) in  shorts. One at 31 minutes. But also nothing much of interest.
