Cardholder Offers



Long Road Home
From director Craig Clyde (The Legend of Wolf Mountain), this coming-of-age melodrama centers on an adolescent boy named Seth (T.J. Lowther) who finds himself orphaned after the death of his widowed mother. With nowhere else to go, Seth moves in with his curmudgeonly grandfather, much to the old man's chagrin. After a shaky start, the duo begin to form a bond and build a life together. Michael Ansara and director Clyde also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

The Missouri Traveler
Missouri Traveler was one of a handful of independent films distributed by Disney's Buena Vista corporation. Brandon De Wilde heads the cast as 15-year-old orphan boy Biarn Turner. Doing his best to survive in the rural South of the pre-WW1 years, Biarn is unofficially adopted by crusty small-town newspaper editor Doyle Magee (Gary Merrill). Also taking an interest in Biarn's future is wealthy self-made farmer Tobias Brown (Lee Marvin), whose apparently cruel treatment of the boy masks his genuine affection and concern. Highlights include an annual trotting race and a climactic set-to between Magee and Brown. The Missouri Traveller is based on the novel by John Burress. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Against a Crooked Sky
Against a Crooked Sky is a remake of John Ford's landmark western The Searchers. Richard Boone appears in the John Wayne role, playing an ageing trapper obsessed with rescuing a white girl from her Indian captors. Another movie veteran, Henry Wilcoxon, is the ruthless yet honorable Indian chief. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
