Two Good Men . . . At War With Each Other
From whale oil lamps to light the night to kerosene lamps and from kerosene lamps to electric lights . . . the new usually makes the old disappear forever . . . but not without a good fight. Now, the old isn't 'bad' and the new isn't 'good' - it isn't a good vs. bad thing, just a new thing vs. an old thing.
That is the main plot of this adventure between a titan of shipping who moves freight by horse and wagon and a new man in town who wants to bring the railroad through and make horse and wagon freight line obsolete. This was a real struggle between real men as America was growing, and real men fought and died in the transition.
Toss in a beautiful daughter of the horse and wagon freight line owner who falls in love with the man who is bringing the railroad through Kansas and it can get plenty complicated. If you are a 'boomer' you will recognize many of the actors in this adventure who entertained us . . . like Lee J. Cobb, Jane Wyatt, George Reeves and Max Baer, heavyweight boxing champ and father of the character Jethro Bodine from The Beverly Hillbillies television show.
The battle between the railroad and the freight line builds to a bruising battle in the pass with both forces locked, loaded and ready to shoot it out to the death of one side or the other. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the battle.
