Audience Reviews for Ten Who Dared


A group of ten hairy frontiersmen go on the first boating expedition to map the raging Colorado River at the base of the Grand Canyon. It's a great adventure. There are a range of personality conflicts, and several challenges along the way: a wrecked boat, hostile indian territory, an unwelcome pet dog, treacherous cliffs, alcoholism, civil war rivalry, shortage of food, local legends, theft and general stupidity. We must also endure some terrible cowboy singing. Not all the men survive the expedition. Brian Keith famously plays a stubborn mountain man with a fake beard. It's now available on Disney DVD!
