-Comment: About 10 or 11 yo bond Donald MacDonald (died in 2014) in brown clothes and a brown wool cap and a green shirt. Also some other kids including Lee Erickson and many boys and girls.

Both pics from near the beginning. But several scenes with Little Eli.

Flat 2.55:1 CinemaScope widescreen. Directed by Burt Lancaster. Also starring Dianne Foster and Diana Lynn.

The boy also starred in Fury (1955, coming soon) and the western series Frontier (1955-1956).

Quite handsome actor but I don’t like these brown clothes. I don’t remember riding or other scenes of interest. I think a typical western for it’s time.

Previously rated 3, now rating 5 because of Lee Erickson. More pics at
