Does anyone know an old movie I think is a western which starts with boys playing knock out ginger. A miserable old man catches a lad invites him in and tells him a story. The story is about a hero of somekind. The movie ends with him giving the lad some feathers and other things which is when you know the story is about himself.

Wow, I really thought Brian had managed to nail it. Just to make sure it wasn't the one, here's a clip from THE INCREDIBLE ROCKY MOUNTAIN RACE in case you haven't already viewed it:

And if the "feathers and other things" you mentioned happened to include a train conductor's cap, an Indian chief's moccasins or a Pony Express rider's saddlebag, those are among the items that Mark Twain and Mike Fink had to collect along the way in their race.
