Editorial Reviews

The two Beaudine Bothers refuse rancher Hatcher's offer to go on his cattle drive but change their minds when he is shot. So they head out with six other riders, a cook and a recuperating owner heading 1500 cows towards Colorado 1000 miles away. Along the way they will face accidents, Indians, two of the riders aiming to rustle some of Hatcher's cattle and flee, squatters demanding money, a stampede, and a lack of water.

Format: DVD
The previous reviewer obviously doesn't know that this "movie" is actually a two hour episode of the short lived series "The Quest". The Boudine brothers were seperated as boys when the wagon train their family was traveling with was attacked by the Cheyenne and the boys' parents were killed. The boys each thought the other had died in the attack, Quentin being rescued and raised in the east and Morgan being captured and raised by the Cheyenne (Morgan "Two Persons" is not a half-breed even though some people they run into call him one because of the way he is dressed). The brothers are reunited when everyone is massacred in the Cheyenne band that Morgan is living with (the only reason he survives is because the soldiers see his "bleach blonde hair" and realize that he is not Cheyenne. In the series the brothers are searching for their younger sister who was also taken by the Cheyenne but was living with a different band than her brother Morgan.

Since this is an episode of a television series don't expect an Oscar quailty movie. And, since it is from the '70's it is not politically correct.

Still, it is an entertaining flick although definitely not high art. If you like Tim Matheson and/or Kurt Russell you will probably enjoy this "movie". If you are a fan of The Quest this may be the only way to get any part of the series on dvd.

Update:

When I reviewed this dvd in 2006, there were no other releases of any of the rest of this series. I am glad to say that the pilot episode is now available for purchase The Quest (Pilot) (1976)

Hopefully they will release the rest of the series.

Please be warned that this is NOT the pilot for the series "The Quest", as might be assumed from the cast list. You won't find Brian Keith and Cameron Mitchell anywhere on this DVD, which, as other reviewers have pointed out, is really just a two-part episode from the series itself. While the two-parter itself is fairly good, it doesn't hold a candle to the pilot. Oh, how I wish that one was on DVD!

I loved this movie and series when it came out in the 70's. I am looking forward to seeing an old show on DVD. With all the other old TV shows that have been re-released, I hope they get around to putting out the entire series. My old HS friend, Hi Anne! LMC!) and I would love that! Order this episode, even though it is just one double=episode. Maybe if we can "vote with our dollars"? Buy more copies...

I received my copy of this double episode, great to see familiar faces, hear the over-the-top Western music score that goes with this series. Kurt Russell is still great as "Two-Persons", and it is amazing the way he can just swing up on his horse. Didn't look like a stunt-double to me! Tim Matheson, ever-cute playing Doctor, is also fun to watch being a little more serious than he was in "Animal House". This series was truly great, as it offered a new, more sensitive perspective of "Manifest Destiny" and its effect on various populations, and the conflicts that erupted during the "taming" of the West. I love the fact that it was filmed in Arizona, sometimes looking like New Mexico. Scenery is authentic, lending realism to the plot. Even the old wagons used look like the real thing.

It IS possible to find the entire series, TV pilot and TV movie included, on other web sites. I have since aquired the full set. You just need to look hard, like "The Quest".

My teen kids have enjoyed watching this series, as well. Maybe the time is right for a more traditional TV series? Not all this smart-mouthed, wise-cracking, over-packaged TV we have nowadays? Movie Execs have been busy remaking our old movies for lack of original ideas. Why not offer good, old-fashioned values once again, and remaster this series to be released as a full set on DVD?

Today's television has nothing to offer. This movie was an EXCELLENT replacement and very entertaining for the entire family. Better than what we'll paying for junk on the television.

This movie is actually one part of a great saga that involves two brothers seperated when they were very young one living with the whites the other living with indians they meet up and decide to go find there sister who is still kidnapped by the indians. In this part of the saga the brothers meet up with a rancher named Hatcher taht had helped the tribe that the one brother had lived with. He has fallen on hard times and the brothers stick around to help him out. If you like movies that remind you of Louis Lamore books you'll love this movie.

What can I say...Kurt Russell has always been a super old west actor (and anything else he decides to do!).
This type of program should have made it as a series. The values it teaches beat the heck out of the trash we're letting our kids watch nowadays. Vampires, zombies, violence and sex; that's all you find on TV now. Even PG-13 allows the F word now. You can't trust anything that comes out if you're trying to raise your kids decently.

I did enjoy the movie but was a bit disappointed because I thought they would look and maybe find their sister. I think that Kurt Russell and Tim Matheson are great actors and did good in this movie.
