-Comment: Kevin Corcoran (as 5 yo Arliss, pic 1, also in Wagon Train) and Tommy Kirk (as 14 yo Travis, also 1956 in Gunsmoke)  in different shirts. Both wearing light brown pants, Kirk a medium brown vest and a medium blue shirt in another scene. Not sure about riding scenes with the kids (Arliss riding the dog).

I’m sure that I have seen this movie but many years ago and so it needs to be rechecked as well.

Obviously a typical 50s Disney movie with animals (here a dog). Based on the 1956 novel by Fred Gipson. Also starring Fess Parker.

Arliss is very young here. Rather an adventure and ranch movie than a western. Some book editions also showing a boy in blue bib overalls but I haven’t found the word in the novel.

Rating 6-7 for now (for Travis).

I also have updated the stats pic and will make one about my favourite westerns (so far) soon.
