Although the story spans the late 1870's through the early 1880's, Molly refers to her grandfather being killed in the Cherry Valley Massacre. As that took place in 1778, at least 100 years earlier, that seems highly unlikely. See more »

"WOW, is this movie ever outdated!", I thought to myself as I started to watch The Virginian. It's weird how the early sound films can seem older than the silent movies made five or ten years before them. But as the movie went on I was genuinely caught up in the story of man's man Gary Cooper romancing schoolteacher Mary Brian while trying to fend off the evil deeds of cattle thief Walter Huston. It's fascinating watching Cooper's best friend Richard Arlen slip into Huston's ring of thieves. Both friends are "wild" and "ornery" but Arlen has less of a sense of himself and his morals and his weakness is his downfall. Talented director Victor Fleming keeps things going despite the technical limitations. *** out of ****
