Really fantastic profile of human courage despite great odds.
19 September 2002 | by (Olympia, Washington) – See all my reviews

I am a HUGE Richard Arlen fan, so of course, did I ever love this one!!!! The filming is rather modern for that era and the emotion and action seem to be equally portrayed and well done by all. There doesn't seem to be the same kind of poetry and grand cinema "feel" in later movies, I am glad it was produced in this decade of film-making. I love Fay Wray, she is well-paired with Arlen. This story is one of personal discovery and courage despite great adversity and seemingly impossible odds. Richard Arlen comes to sound without one iota of hesitation* and does one of tha most memorable characters in his long career. Friendship, betrayal, redemption: Great stuff to put on the screen--fantastic story. *(This is one of the first pictures made after sound was available.) Exceptional Group of Classic Film Stars!! Hope I can find a copy for my Richard Arlen video collection.
