Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two boys from different backgrounds learn the value of friendship in this comedy-drama for the family. Spin (Tim Considine) is a likable and outgoing kid with a love of the outdoors who meets Marty (David Stollery), a stuck-up kid from the city, while both are spending the summer at a camp called the Triple R Ranch. Though Spin and Marty butt heads at first thanks to Marty's initial dislike of the ranch, the boys eventually develop a respect for each other and become good friends by the time they compete at the big, end-of-summer rodeo. Spin and Marty: The Movie was edited from a 25-episode serial which originally aired in 1955 on the television series The Mickey Mouse Club.
