| Entertaining "Fortean" film
Apart from the sad facts about the star, and about Dottie West not too much later, I only know two things about this film. First, it's the only movie I know of that's connected with the 1897 "Airship" (a subject I'm very attached to), which was (strangely enough) a wave of U.F.O. stories from much of the country in 1896-97. (Although most U.F.O. and / or Airship believers don't believe the Aurora, TX. story.) The other is this - a rural comedy, or comedy-drama, or fantasy story, cannot possibly be all bad if it has Jack Elam! And the other actors (including Dottie West, not a professional actress) did very well too. I'm sure this has been labeled a low budget answer to a Disney movie, or E.T., as one person put it, but there's nothing wrong with that.
