Screen favorite James Garner stars in this family comedy as Lincoln Costain, a mid-19th century Texan cowboy who's shanghaied and placed aboard a ship bound for Hawaii. After he jumps ship off the coast of Kauai, a 12-year-old boy rescues him from drowning. While Lincoln waits for a way to return home, he decides to help the boy's mother's failing potato plantation by turning it into a cattle ranch. But first, he must outwit an unscrupulous businessman, outfight an evil witch doctor and turn the easy-going islanders into ridin' and ropin' cowpokes. So round up your family and say aloha to THE CASTAWAY COWBOY -- and family entertainment at its best!
At one point star James Garner, known for playing tough-guy roles, breaks into song, accompanied by full orchestration. Yee haw!
