This TV movie is set in the old Northwest. Belinda J. Montgomery wants to marry young Tim Matheson, but her father (Claude Akins) is against it. Matheson takes matters in his own hands by "kidnapping" Belinda and heading for Oregon. With Montgomery's daddy and her goonish brothers in hot pursuit, the elopers encounter several thrilling adventures in the woods and wilds. The marriage nearly ends before it begins when Montgomery and Matheson take to quarreling, but they're husband and wife by fadeout time. The pilot film for an unsold series, Lock, Stock and Barrel was remade in 1973 as Hitched (another TV pilot) with Sally Field in the lead.
