synopsis


Ben Quick arrives in Frenchman's Bend, after being kicked out of another town for allegedly burning a barn for revenge. Will Varner owns just about everything in Frenchman's Bend and he hires Ben to work in his store. Will thinks his own son, Jody, who manages the store, lacks ambition and despairs of him getting his wife, Eula, pregnant. Will thinks his daughter, Clara, a schoolteacher, will never get married. He decides that Ben Quick might make a good husband for Clara to bring some new blood into the family.

Lots of fun!!!

Lots of fun and romance with Paul & Joanne's first movie together. An intelligent and tight script with troubled but likable characters. I love the handsome, talented and energetic cast (except for Orson who was too young for the role with the heavy makeup melting in the heat).
