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.

Early technicolor western...de Havilland's first color film...
14 October 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Not much distinction to this routine western, aside from the fact that it introduced Olivia de Havilland to the screen for the first time in technicolor. Unfortunately, neither her role nor the film itself are ever able to rise above the routine dimensions of a weak script. George Brent stars as the miner in conflict with de Havilland's rancher father Claude Rains.

It takes place in the 1870s and has a narration at the beginning and end that tells us this was meant to be an important little "epic" for the Warner studio. Despite some solid scenes of mining operations and an agreeable enough cast that includes Tim Holt (as de Havilland's brother), Margaret Lindsay and Sidney Toler (before his Charlie Chan days), the story itself is a weakness guaranteed to produce yawns long before the rambling tale reaches an action-filled finish. But by then, you're not likely to be paying too much attention.

Of all of the early ingenue roles de Havilland had at Warner Bros., this is definitely one of her weakest. It seems that when she wasn't playing opposite Flynn, she had no real leading man. Charisma between her and Brent is sorely lacking.
