The Rare Breed Reviews

    Broad, solidly made Western with an unusual topic is a partly amusing drama, but not really exciting; the star cast does a good job, though.

    Your average James Stewart Western, but with some decent little things here and there. Despite his age, James does a surprising bit of brawling and wrangling. I would consider this a superior western than the likes of Night Passagey, but only just.

    A rodeo man is hired (by two different agents) to deliver a rare Hereford bull. An almost passionless Stewart, and a "no surprises" performance by Maureen O'Hara turn what could have been an interesting outing into a stale affair.

    I watch a movie to be entertained and that is what happens every time I see this motion picture. If you love movies and if you are a fan of Jimmy Stewart and Maureen O'Hara, you will love this one.

    Not one of James Stewarts best films,Maureen O'Hara appears out of her comfort zone, or just lost in a rather run of the mill film about breeding cows and romance thrown in, enjoyable but far from a classic

    A boring tail of a bull that was brought to the us from England. Skip it.

    nconvincing studio sets and uninspired direction don't help in lifting this above other bloated, awkward studio productions of the period.

    This was not one of James Stewarts best efforts not that it was really his fault.
