The Castaway Cowboy (1974)

James Garner, Vera Miles, and Robert Culp star in this comedy that’s great for the whole family. In the mid-19th century, a Texas cowboy named Lincoln Costain gets “shanghaied” and put on a ship headed to Hawaii. He jumps overboard and is saved by a 12-year-old boy named Booton MacAvoy.
