More silly than wacky, this is the rare movie that works both as a great "G-Rated" kids matinee or a bizarre college-crowd midnight show.
WAGON TRAIN IN THE WEST was an attempt to blend the popularity of Bob
Denver's GILLIGAN'S ISLAND and Forrest Tucker's F-TROOP... all in a Western
setting. This 1976 theatrical release was a compilation of several episodes of
the short lived, but cult favorite TV series DUSTY'S TRAIL.
With comedy and
situations in the same vein as GILLIGAN"S ISLAND -- and even starring Bob Denver
again -- Dusty is a bumbling assistant to wagonmaster Forrest Tucker. And just
as with the Gilligan cast, there are two pretty girls and a rich couple
traveling along for the ride.
