The Cowboys Movie Summary

60-something Wil Andersen must find a new set of ranch hands when gold fever strikes in his part of the state. He needs to drive his cattle 400 miles to Bozeman, Montana, and although it’s a precarious journey, he hires a group of schoolboys to ride with him during their summer break.

One of the boys, Cimarron, is a bit older, and wants to join Andersen, but he has an angry demeanor, and Andersen doesn’t want the extra headache. Anderson makes Cimarron leave while he teaches the others what they need to learn for the trip.

During the preparations, “Long Hair” Watts, the leader of a group of cattle rustlers, tries to convince Andersen to hire them instead of the boys. Andersen doesn’t care that these men just got out of prison as much as he doesn’t like Long Hair lying to him. When he figures out that Long Hair is indeed lying to him, he flat out refuses to hire the men.
