Overview

Joe Camp, the writer and director of Benji, tried his hand with another breed of animal in this comedy. A U.S. Cavalry unit in Texas is having a hard time dealing with horses who aren't acclimated to the hot, dry weather, so it becomes the subject of an experiment -- instead of horses, the cavalry men will be issued camels, with hapless Howard Clemmons James Hampton put in charge of training the soldiers to handle their new mounts. While no one is happy with the arrangement at first, in time the soldiers become quite fond of their camels, so they're quite upset when the experiment is declared a failure and they're ordered to let the camels go free. Hawmps! also starred Western stalwarts Slim Pickens, Denver Pyle, and Jack Elam; well-known animal trainer Frank Inn has a bit part as a cook. Hawmps! was originally released at 126 minutes, though it was soon trimmed to 113 minutes; the shorter version is the only one in circulation at this time.

    Fine film, but a subpar DVD

    "Hawmps?" itself is an excellent little light comedy that tells the tale of when the pre Civil War U.S. Army experimented using camels. It's good natured fun for the family with lots of light laughs. But the DVD is one of the absoloute worst I've ever seen in my entire life. It's so fuzzy and blurry that you can hardly make out anything on the screen. Avoid it until a better version comes out.
