Across the Wide Missouri

  • Film
  • Westerns
Though subjected to brutal studio cutting which largely wrecked it, an impressive Western set in Colorado in the 1820s and anticipating Jeremiah Johnson in its celebration of the rumbustiously idyllic life of the early fur trappers, which ended in bloodshed with the Indians aroused by the coming of greedy civilisation. Shot almost entirely on location, it's worth seeing for the landscapes alone.
