A runaway orphan, Biarn Turner (De Wilde), attempts to escape his troubles by traveling to Florida during the early 1900’s. He finds his way to a small town where the local newspaper editor, Doyle Magee (Merrill), decides to take the boy in and give him a chance at a regular life. Wealthy local farmer, Tobias Brown (Marvin), also takes an interest in Biarn’s future, but he treats the young man harshly, masking Tobias’ real hidden feelings of affection and genuine concern. Biarn’s mannerisms and willingness to help others, quickly wins the favor of the local townsfolk; And he also proves his worth by preparing a seemingly untrainable horse for a race that the town will hold during their annual 4th of July celebration.

This movie shows us how “the boy from Shane”,has matured, still a soft talking very polite youth. He is a runaway in this movie and is groomed by Lee Marvin, a hard taskmaster who has made a name for himself as the poor boy who made good in this story. He takes unfair advantage of Brandon, but in the process, really teaches the youth some valuable lessons about life and how to take care of himself. These are lessons we can all learn from, and Gary Merrill provides care, comfort, and guidance for Brandon as he overcomes the hard “teaching” of Marvin. The film is anchored by the fine acting of Paul Ford, as usual, a leader of the business community, but with a soft heart for the troubled. This is a great family film, free of Hollywoods blood, guts, sex, and profanity. Written by billydpowell on

What a sweet beautiful movie.

mary thomas says:

It was a pleasure watching this entertaining family movie. The young man was dependable, responsible, never lied, learned quickly, and was kind to animals. He was a good example for children to view. The story takes place in a small town filled with kind people who had to tolerate one rich, selfish, farmer.

Robert D. Carver says:

Transformation and redemption for everyone. Wonderful low-key performances from the entire cast, including Lee Marvin as Brown, who must teach Byron (De Wilde) some hard life lessons. The only trouble with the plot is that Twister–a beautiful horse by any standards–would have had to have been trained earlier.

Yasmine Nazarine says:

I don't like it when comes to the food 😳 such wasting food on the ground. 🧐😳

Paul says:

Brandon deWilde was the kid in 'Shane' with Alan Ladd (1953) just five years before this movie. He died young at age 30 in a traffic accident.
