the saga of the pioneers going west in the covered wagons
17 September 1999 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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.
