A recording of the music for this film was made using the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process. Some sources say the entire film was scored and recorded in this process, but other sources say only a couple of reels were recorded as an experiment. See also Bella Donna (1923). See more »
the saga of the pioneers going west in the covered wagons
This film is a great classic, but it is not easy to see it, because it's silent, also the makeup of the male main character is overdone. But still it grabs you. The main star of the film is the covered wagon itself, presented in a way that makes it more real than in any other western that I've seen.
