As a kid that was one of my favorite movies and I loved the theme. I haven't seen it in ages.

That's some great movie music. And the film itself is excellent, too.

The 1954 pop hit derived from the theme song actually starred Leroy Holmes, whistling the theme. Here it is:

The film was nearly lost when the Wayne family vault was flooded, destroying most of it. Only recently, a version was found in Great Britain that could be melded with the original, so it is now available. It is a great and powerful 1950s film.

I wondered why I never saw it on TCM. I doubt I have seen it since childhood.
