Production of this movie was delayed because, according to her doctor, Loretta Young had suffered severe stress making two films back to back, The Call of the Wild (1935) and The Crusades (1935). The truth was that she had become pregnant with Clark Gable's child during The Call of the Wild (1935), and she asked her doctor to lie to the studio. She then took a trip, claimed she found a girl in an orphanage, fell in love with her and adopted her. The daughter, Judy Lewis went public with the information that she is the daughter of Loretta Young and Clark Gable in her 1994 book "Uncommon Knowledge". See more »
Spanish Loretta Young (!) was raised by a wealthy family. The family's son loves Loretta but she loves Indian Don Ameche (oh boy). Then she finds out that she's also half-Indian, which makes her happy as she can marry Ameche. It's one of those movies, folks. When Ameche rides into view and you realize he's gone full Tonto for this picture, you basically have two choices: turn it off or soldier on, knowing full well this is going to be a little hard to swallow.
The early Technicolor is nice and makes the beautiful scenery pop. Young is lovely, even with the jet black hair that doesn't suit her. Speaking of lovely, Katherine DeMille appears in this and her beauty is also enhanced by the color. Good support from Jane Darwell, J. Carrol Naish, and Pauline Frederick. John Carradine has a small part. It's a well-intentioned bit of hokum. Amusing at times but depressing if you take it seriously.
