Mother, where's Jeff?
Mrs. Jane Jett:
I'm not your mother. Call me Jane if the name Mrs. Jett makes yuh jealous.
Jealous? Why I don't know what you mean.
Mrs. Jane Jett:
You're no more related to Jett than I am
I've never claimed to be.
Mrs. Jane Jett:
Hunh... I guess Jett's just as glad of that as you are, but you needn't worry about it... just as long as I'm alive. Why don't you take up with one of the boys. You still could get one redy enough to fight your step-father off when he gets 'funny.'

It's not too bad, but the good cast builds up expectations for this Western that are not really fulfilled. The story is just fair, and only the occasional good action scenes keep it going. It stars Randolph Scott, and has a good supporting cast that includes the likes of Harry Carey, Buster Crabbe, and more. The story has quite a bit going on, most of it focusing on rival groups of buffalo hunters. A lot happens, but much of the time it doesn't seem to fit together that well, and there are some slow stretches that could easily have been shortened or omitted. It's worth a look for the cast if you like older Westerns, but don't expect too much.
