Quick Overview

Starring Robert Cummings, Terry Moore, Jerome Courtland, John Russell,

Will Geer

Directed by Earl McEvoy



Print: color

Runtime: 83 min.

Genre: adventure

Print Quality: B



To call The Barefoot Mailman episodic would be understating the issue:

the film's story stops and starts so often that it appears to be three

half-hour TV episodes strung together. No matter, since the premise is

workable and the characters appealing. Though Robert Cummings is

top-billed as erudite 19th-century con artist Sylvanus Hartley, the title

character, Steven Pierton, is played by Jerome Courtland. The film is set

in turn-of-the-century Florida, which was then little more than an

elongated swamp. It is the responsibility of Steve Pierton to deliver the

mail by foot, covering the distance from Palm Beach to Miami. Attempting

to elude the northern authorities, Sylvanus Hartley joins Pierton on his

treacherous journey. Their travelling companion is Adie Titus (Terry

Moore), a hoydenish young lady who disguises herself as a child to avoid

unwanted advances. After saving Adie from the clutches of swamp outlaw

Theron (John Russell) and his gang, Hartley goes off on a new tangent,

bamboozling the local settlers in a highly suspect land-speculation

scheme. When Theron and his fellow crooks lay siege upon Miami, Hartley

and Pierton, despite their rivalry over the affections of Adie, team up to

save the day. Nothing if not unusual, The Barefoot Mailman is based on a

novel by Theodore Pratt.
