John Steineck's novel The Wayward Bus was retranslated into pop-entertainment terms for
the screen. Most of the story takes place on the charter bus owned by driver Rick Jason.
Travelling slowly through a treacherous California mountain region, the passengers —
including Jason's spiteful, alcoholic wife Joan Collins— undergo a variety of life-altering
experiences. The journey has its most profound effects upon an iconoclastic travelling
salesman (Dan Dailey) and lonely stripper (Jayne Mansfield). This is one instance in which
the oblong CinemaScope lens is inappropriate to the intimacy of the story.

MacDonald Carey and Alexis Smith star in the heavily plotted western
Cave of Outlaws. Carey plays Pete Carver, who has spent 10 years in jail
for participating in a train holdup. Upon his release, Pete heads to the
huge cave where his cohorts had hidden their loot. Not surprisingly, he is
trailed to the hiding place by several interested parties, including Wells
Fargo investigator Dobbs (Edgar Buchanan) and all-around baddie Ben
Cross (Victor Jory). Smith plays the vengeful widow of a newspaperman
who was murdered by the crooks, while Hugh O'Brian is suitably
menacing as Cross' trigger-happy nephew. Cave of Outlaws was
Technicolorfully filmed on location in Carlsbad Caverns.
