Finally found the real thing!
Old as anything, but at least it's genuine!
Anyway, to start the review, I'll go through the characters in the film.
1. Ken McLaughlin:
Okay, Roddy McDowall is a good actor, but his
VOICE! His ACCENT!! He sounds like
some English girl!! Anyway, back to the character.
Let's just say he's a flunk at schoolwork. (aren't we all??)
Seen there with Diana Hale, who plays Hildy. More about her in a sec.
But, first, I'll go to the second most important character.
Only picture I could get.
Um... she's pretty...not loco..
hey, she's a horse, so she does her job!
3. Robert (or Rob) McLaughlin:
The only picture I could find of him. Obviously not Preston Foster's most famous movie.
He plays Rob pretty well.
4. Nell McLaughlin:
Actor Rita Johnson.
She does not look like that in the movie!
Hildy is a made-up character. But, hey, improvements can be good.
She's a real talkative, cute, little girl, who acts very grown up.
Probably eats too much too!
"Whenever I do sumpin' dumb, my momma says I sure am like the old man.
And whenever I do sumpin' smart, my pop says I sure don't take after the old lady."
Yes, she wears a dress sometimes.
Another favourite quote:
Ken - "Hildy, don't do that! Cigarette will kick you!"
Hildy - "He better don't, or I'll kick 'im back!"
She'd be on my list of the top ten cutest kids in movies!
Gus & Tim are farmhands. Hildy is Gus's daughter.
Next time - Part Two.
