      isla s I thought this was an easy and pleasant watch with some nice characters, including a somewhat naive young boy referred to as 'Digger'. Its mildly intriguing and I liked that Corby (the main female character) can somewhat stand up for herself. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pleasant diversion but Robert Mitchum was always unable to play anything other than Robert Mitchum. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member prolific director ended his directorial career with this light weight comedy Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member When the opening credits promise a Howard Hughes production, you know you're in for something rather odd. Eccentric small-town comedy that never really takes off, however I did like Arthur Hunnicutt's scene-stealing turn as the town drunk... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Low-profile story of an unknown benefactor in a small town which never gets exciting - neither Mitchum or Simmons light up the screen either. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member great cast in this RKO comedy/western Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
