Widow Josie Minick (Doris Day) takes up sheep farming in order to support herself and her son. Her new neighbours are dismayed by her activities.
Bland is too strong a word for this tepid flick, which never really catches fire despite being directed by western ace Andrew V McLaglen.
Doris Day is good, even though by this stage in her career she was becoming hard to cast, but the men are desperately uninteresting – only Andy Devine brings a sense of authenticity to this western where the jeans look newly ironed and the faces are too well scrubbed.
This was the first Day movie to play as a co-feature, and the writing was on the wall – she made only two more films and then, sadly, retired from the big screen.
