Heres a good movie that really needs to be remade. Production realities of the day keep the story from really coming through, the whole man v. nature aspect of the cattle trail. Someone like Peter Weir ought to take a crack at it. Good stuff, though, even if the ending is completely asinine. To a politically active animal rights person, this movie must seem like a Holocaust film. “Good beef for hungry people. Beef to keep em strong and make em grow.”
