Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Lincoln Costain (James Garner) has been rescued from drowning by a 12-year-old boy on the island of Kauai. As he helps the boy's widowed mother turn a scrubby potato farm into the island's first cattle spread, he must outwit the treacherous local witch doctor, turn a bunch of happy-go-lucky islanders into cowhands, and head off a disastrous midnight stampede.

In the early '70's, James Garner made two films for Disney studios, "One Little Indian" and "The Castaway Cowboy." Of the two, "Cowboy" is by far the best: a slight but entertaining little comedy-western co-starring the lovely Vera Miles (who was also in "Indian"). She plays Henrietta McAlvoy, the owner of a failing Hawaiian (known here as the Sandwich Islands) potato plantation whose native workers fish a nearly drowned deserter named Costain (Garner) out of the ocean. While Costain waits for a ship home to Texas, he hatches a plot to save the farm by turning it into a cattle ranch, using the Hawaiian workers as ranch hands. Of course, in Disney films of the era, there is always a villain, and "Cowboy" features Robert Culp as Bryson, a local businessman who romances Henrietta in order to get her land and when she won't sell, stoops to some nasty business to sabotage Garner's plan.
Everything is predictable and ends just like you think it might. Also quite predictably, Henrietta is a widow with an irrepressibly cute (i.e. cloying and obnoxious) preteen son played by "The Poseidon Adventure"'s young Eric Shea, who gives an even more annoying, don't-say-your-line-shout-it performance than he gave in the previous film. The only other performances of note are given by native Hawaiians playing the workers as stereotypes who exist merely as goofballs to be laughed at. (More about that later.) Only Elizabeth Smith as Henrietta's housekeeper escapes with her dignity intact, since she manages to make her character more than a one-note stereotype.
Finally, about Anchor Bay's DVD presentation.

I really liked this movie!! The scenery was beautiful (of course, it's Kauai and that can't be helped!) and the story line was interesting with all the obstacles James Garner had to contend with to help this family establish a cattle ranch. It also had a great ending and the good people won! My kids even enjoyed it (ages 4,5, and 8), so I must recommend it.

Garner made 2 movie for disney. if your on the look out for good family movie that are fun, no cursing or nudity, a little action and a little romance... you want Castaway Cowboy, CC not One Little Indian, OLI.
CC is a nice movie about a cowboy that ends up stuck on an island. He shows the nice widow woman how to start a cattle ranch instead of tring to far or fish.
OLI is very boring. Not one of my three kids stayed for the end. And isn't that the true test of a movie. It isn't totally what mom or I like, it is also what they will like enough to sit and watch and enjoy.

This movie might be called a Western, but it is one of the best comedy movies I have seen in recent years. I am a big James Garner Fan, so of course I like almost everything he is in. This movie was the best!!!
I saw this movie several years ago and have searched for it for sometime before I finally found it on Amazon. Now I go to Amazon for any movie I am looking for first!!! Way to go Amazon. There are not enough stars in the rate this item for this movie. Great movie for parents and kids to watch together, but then most of the shows we watch, are suitable for parents to watch with their kids. I can't stand the new shows with all the Sci fi and the horror shows. Disgusting. What is out younger generation coming to.
Thanks again Amazon, for having this title available. You are Number 1 with us.

This movie was ok, but I found myself looking through magazines and such as it had many slow parts in it making it seem so much longer. It is hilarious in spots where Garner is attemting to teach the islanders how to ride a horse and rope cattle. I would rent first, it is fine for kids of all ages, hey, it's Disney!

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST CHILDREN'S MOVIE WHERE EVEN THE ADULT'S ARE CARRIED AWAY. I AM ABOUT 60 AND I STILL ENJOY THIS MOVIE. YOU HAVE TO LOOK FROM THE EYE'S OF CHILDREN IT IS SO GOOD THAT YOU WILL FORGET THAT YOU ARE ADULT BUT WILL INJOY WITH THE LITTLE KIDS-THANKS TO DISNEY AND ONE OF THE LAST OF THE OLD LEGEND OF THE WESTERN WORLD JAMES GARNER-WE ARE PRIVILIGED TO SEE HIM IN THIS 21ST CENTURY LIKE THE OLD TOM MIX IN THE BEGINNING OF THE CENTURY WHEN HE WAS AROUND WITH REAL WYATT EARP GIVING HIM THE TECHNICAL DETAILS. I DONT WANT TO GIVE AWAY THE STORY WITH VAST OPEN SPACES AND THE SEA FOR THE CHILDREN WHO MAY HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN THE SEA BUT THE HIGH RISE APARTMENTS OF CONCRETE JUNGLE.-I AM SURE THEY WILL ALL INJOY AND LAUGH AT THIS ADVENTURE TRIP-CURTSEY OF DISNEY FILMS.

This is a nice family movie for all even if it is a bit on the long side. Great DVD treatment from Anchor Bay. Let's hope they get more Disney films to release as Disney treats the majority of their classics in miserable shoddy full screen format. Kudos to Anchor Bay!

THIS MOVIE IS A BIT OF MOSTLY UNKNOWN HISTORY OF HOW CATTLE RANCHING CAME TO HAWAII. JAMES GARNER IS ALWAYS GREAT AND DOES A WONDERFUL JOB AS A SHANGHAIED COWBOY WHO JUMPS SHIP AND ENDS UP ON KAUA'I TRYING TO START A CATTLE RANCH TO HELP A WIDOW SAVE HER LAND. UNFORTUNATELY, THE RANCH HANDS ARE HAWAIIAN BOYS WHO WOULD RATHER PLAY IN THE OCEAN THAN HERD CATTLE. DRAMA, HUMOR AND THAT DISNEY TOUCH MAKE THIS VIDEO A HIDDEN TREASURE.
