The Castaway Cowboy

Rated G (US) / G (Canada), Comedy

James Garner stars in this 1974 comedy as Lincoln Costain, a cowboy from Texas who's kidnapped and dumped on board a ship bound for Hawaii. After he escapes off the coast of Kauai, a young boy saves him from drowning.

He decides to help the boy's mother's deteriorating potato plantation by turning it into a cattle ranch while he figures out a way to get home. But first, he must outsmart a dishonest entrepreneur, fight a wicked witch doctor and turn the laid back islanders into cowboys. The Castaway Cowboy makes great use of James Garnerís highly enjoyable talents and makes this DVD a great treat for the whole family to enjoy.
