Guthrie, screenplay by Ben Maddow and Mitch Lindemann and starring Kirk Douglas as Senator William J. Tadlock. Plot summary: In 1843 the widower Senator Tadlock leaves Independence Missouri and heads west on the Oregon trail in a wagon train along with his son William [Stefan Arngrim] and a large group of fellow pioneers guided by Dick Summers [Robert Mitchum].
