M-G-M's first 3-D production shot at a rodeo in Tucson, Arizona is a story surrounded by objects flying into the camera. The story takes place in one day between the rodeo events where bronc buster Gig Young has left his wife, Polly Bergen, for rodeo-follower (i.e., "groupie" for those born since the sixties) Barbara Lawrence. The reconciliation of Young and Bergen is brought about by Harry Morgan (still being billed as Henry Morgan), an over-the-hill bronc buster now reduced to being the show's clown. (Rodeo clowns are usually the most disciplined, most valuable to the welfare of the rodeo cowboys and best-trained of all rodeo performers but Hollywood always showed them as down-and-outers.) Morgan of course has a pretty wife, Jean Hagen, and a little boy, Lee Aker, and anybody watching this film and not guessing who is going to get killed just hasn't been exposed to enough scripts from Hollywood set around a rodeo arena.Written by

The film, on its initial release, only played in 3D in one theatre, The Rialto in New York. The 3D craze had pretty much burned itself out at the time. The film did poorly at the box office and was released in a flat version. See more »
I'm a big fan of Harry Morgan (Col. Potter from MASH) but I didn't realize why this was so boring until I read it was one of the first 3D films so that explains it - the whole thing takes place at a rodeo where they could obviously keep the cameras in one spot and not have to move them. Anyhow it's pretty boring unless you like guys knocking cattle to the ground. Oh yeah, and listening to the same crazy song over and over again and again, it's like a carnival song that plays over and over each time they let a cow out of the pen so you hear it like about 200 times during the film! I just ended up changing the channel
