Film, Action and adventure
This second screen version of Edna Ferber's frontier saga (1890-1915) marks the transitional point between Mann's '50s cycle of Westerns and the expansive epics which occupied his final years. Ford's hero is a man set on lighting out of Oklahoma territory, but so ambiguous is his relationship with spouse Schell that the producer added new clarifying material without the director's permission. Occasionally spectacular, mostly baggy.
