Goofs

Once the story reaches the year 1929, all the women wear 1933 fashions, an unfortunate anachronism, since styles had changed dramatically in those four years, and everything we see them wearing in what is supposed to be 1929 is completely out of tune with the actual styles of that period.

Spectacularly good photog and direction
27 October 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Until the story dredged itself into dreary cliches, this film reminded me of Citizen Kane. Many of the scenes are extremely well-put together; Mervyn LeRoy and Tony Gaudio are as good a team as Welles and Toland (an incredible fact when you view LeRoy's tepid output from the 50's). Paul Muni portrays a blonde cowboy (!), Aline McMahon is beautiful and strong, Mary Astor is scary, and many of the characters age (unbelievably) sixty years over the course of the film. Don't skip this one, it's a fascinating watch!
