A Man Who Would to be King
Did you ever have a dream for more . . . for different . . . for unique . . . Did you ever dream for something that no one else could see . . . Did you ever dream for something that everyone called you a fool for chasing? Tracy Powell, played by David Wayne, has such a dream. Who is David Wayne? You have seen him in many movies and television shows and you even recognize his voice when he speaks, but you never knew his name . . . His name was seldom in huge letters at the beginning of the movie, but rather in small type as one of the supporting actors. In this gold prospecting adventure he is our leading man . . . the man who gets kicked in the teeth so many times while he searches for gold riches that he doesn't even feel it any more. Tracy Powell goes west to California with his friend Bert after reading about the gold being discovered there and is determined to find a rich vein and be a king of the world . . . but the first man he meets in the California gold country is Willis Haver, played by Jim Backus. Haver is the man who gets rich by cheating the hard working prospectors . . . always a few steps ahead of the hard-working prospectors. As our adventure continues our hero discovers a couple of gold veins but gets cheated out of his find by Haver, who has grown wealthy and becomes one of the richest men in the territory, while Tracy continues to search for his part of the American Dream by discovering a vein of gold that no one can take from him. He leaves his wife to follow his dream . . . after being cheated and beat down by events, people and circumstances, he becomes an old man still searching for his dream while everyone around him makes a good life in the new land called California. Will he find his riches by dogged persistence, or become one of the old-timers who never reaches his dream? Some men don't know when to quit . . . and others maybe give up too soon. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
