Well as soon as i saw this film henry fonda became my favourite actor, he exceeds with this role, playing it better than i imagined.

The plot is about a man who goes on a search for gold, this happens to be my favourite story line. I loved this film, joan bennet who played john murdocks wife as sally also plays a good role. WATCH IT!!
