I am not a Western fan so this did not strike me as anything more than routine. It does boast an excitingly photographed and edited five minute land rush sequence that occurs 55 minutes into the film. Otherwise, it's okay, nothing great. Hart's famed 8 minute sound farewell which opens the 1939 reissue of the film is so overacted, so full of nineteenth century melodramatic stage projections, that it is more an embarrassment for the poor old man than the touching event almost universally described by others.
