Movie Details

Wild and Woolly stars young Jane Withers as a hoydenish resident of a modern frontier town. Revelling in the town's 50th anniversary celebration, Jane is brought down to earth by the long-standing feud between her ex-desperado grandfather (Walter Brennan) and a pompous politician (Berton Churchill). The two oldsters challenge one another to a shootout, but at the last moment grandpa Brennan decides not to show up. Branded a coward, Brennan redeems himself by foiling a bank robbery scheme which has been overheard by Jane. If for nothing else, Wild and Woolly is memorable for teaming Jane Withers with Our Gang stalwart Carl Switzer. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
