Disney’s THE CASTAWAY COWBOY starring JAMES GARNER, VERA MILES, ERIC SHEA and ROBERT CULP

Thank heaven for a Disney live-action movie that won't, for a change, make parents wince. Such is THE CASTAWAY COWBOY, a cheerfully agreeable and picturesque little Western, set in, of all places, Hawaii. This is a homey, comfortably amusing and nicely colorful package about a Texas castaway who helps a pretty widow and her small son pioneer a Pacific isle cattle ranch. The film's rudder is James Garner, whose leathery, laconic expertise (minus that pat blandness) winningly sets the tone and flavor. Vera Miles and young Eric Shea are appealing, likewise a gallery of smiling islanders who play Mr. Garner's "pineapple cowboys." Robert Culp is the smooth villain of the uncomplicated little plot, which steadily unwinds under Vincent McEveety's direction.
The picture has genuine charm and sturdiness in the scenes of the natives becoming cowboys, learning to lasso and punch wild steers. For stand-bys, there are several crunching fights and a good old cattle stampede. The beautiful locale (the island of Lauai) makes an exotic, often luscious backdrop, and the native Hawaiian support cast, including Elizabeth Smith, Manu Tupou, Nephi Hannemann and Kim Kahana, is charming. It's hard to resist the sight of Tex Garner, Master Shea and those happy island buckaroos singing "Come-a-Ki-Yi-Yippy" as they hit the Hawaii trail.
