Trivia

In an early scene in which Jared Whitney (George Brent) signs a hotel register, the close-up of the register page shows that the names immediately above Whitney's are "Mr. & Mrs. Donald Siegel, Sonora Cal". Don Siegel, later to gain fame as director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and Dirty Harry (1971), and for mentoring a budding director named Clint Eastwood, was in charge of the second unit that made such insert shots for Warner Brothers movies in the late 1930s.

No gold in these hills
27 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

You've seen this picture before - with a different title and a different cast. It's the one about two warring factions (here, miners and wheat growers) battling over precious land while she (Olivia deHavilland, daughter of the most prominent wheat grower) and he (George Brent, employed by the mining syndicate) fall in love. All very conventional, despite a solid cast and first-rate production values.

Clumsy off-screen narration at both the beginning and end attempts to give this story a documentary feel and some measure of historical significance. Did the film makers tack this on because they felt the story lacked significance and originality? I did.
