Samson Peabody-Jones sets out to conquer the untamed west in 1881, in this remarkable film featuring a cast and crew of 100 talented school children. You'll enjoy the escapades of Peabody-Jones as he braves the frontier in search of adventure and finds a life of danger as well as rewards. It takes a miner's ghost, a mysterious parcel and finally the U.S. Cavalry to bring the story to a happy ending. A highly recommended featurette, with an excellent and original soundtrack score, but very difficult to find.
