Movie Info

James Garner stars as a genial cowboy in this wholesome slice of Disney family fare. Garner is Lincoln Costain, a cowboy in the 1850s who finds himself shanghaied and shipwrecked on a Hawaiian island. He runs into luckless widow Henrietta MacAvoy (Vera Miles) and helps her turn her struggling potato farm into a prosperous cattle ranch. But evil land baron Bryson (Robert Culp) wants all the land for himself and he holds Henrietta's mortgage. Lincoln had been planning to leave Hawaii and return to his Texas home, but decides to stay and help the beautiful widow fend off Bryson's land-grabbing greed.

Audience Reviews for The Castaway Cowboy

6.5/10. Very enjoyable Disney film, and one of that studio's best from the 1970's. James Garner gives an endearing performance. The cast in general is very good. Nice location shooting and the original premise is a plus.
