Storyline

In 1876, an old man finds gold in the Sioux lands, provoking a gold and land rush from immigrants to Dakota. On the way to Custer, the lonely cowboy Dan O'Malley helps to fix the wheel of Mr. Carlton's wagon and flirts with his daughter Lee Carlton. Later, Lee and her father are attacked by horse thieves and Mr. Carlton is murdered; however, the outlaws "Bull" Stanley, Mike Costigan and "Spade" Allen save her from the criminals and head with her to the camp where the pioneers are waiting for President Grant proclamation to explore the lands. In the site, the corrupt Sheriff Layne Hunter rules with his henchmen with horror and injustice. The trio of outlaws decides that Lee needs to get married and select Dan to be her husband. When Bull's sister Millie Stanley is murdered by Hunter's right arm Nat Lucas, "Bull" organizes the men to chase Hunter. But it is 1877 and the gold and land race of wagons is ready to start. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

tragic, funny and grandiose, worth seeing.
10 July 2008 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed so much this film, that it made me think that Cinema did not really evolve from silent to talkies, it just went on in a different direction. I can visualize silent films being made today with narration instead of dialogs. I would not say this film has a good story, it is over sentimental and naive, but it is a proof of what a great director, great cinematography and great actors can do. It has of of the funniest scenes when the "bad men" pick up a dandy in the saloon, his expressions of fear and conceit, also the fantastic way he dances with one of the girls. It also has a tragic and beautiful scene where a baby is abandoned, during the stampede of horsemen and carriages reminding one of the pram scene in "Potemkin". And also one of the most spectacular, grandiose scenes where thousands are waiting for the sound of the cannon to rush for the land. This DVD copy was excellent with a great soundtrack added.
