Trivia

After the world premiere in Cincinnati, Ohio, the New York Office of M-G-M ordered 30 minutes to be cut from the film, since exhibitors complained about its length. In his autobiography, King Vidor says he expected the cuts to come out of the documentary footage in the film, but that footage was already wedded to the music. So the cuts came out of the dramatic portions. Many of the actors listed in the cast may not be seen in the 121-minute cut version which Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has shown. See more »

Goofs

As Steve Dangos closes his front door (after arriving home from the board meeting), a hand and lower arm can also be seen closing the door from the outside. See more »

What an Epic!!! what propaganda for the American dream!! King Vidor's directorial credits are inconsistent/ but interesting & varied... what an underappreciated saga this is !!!Brian Donlevy would be the top hunk on any Bear publication !! what a hunk he was then.. Ann Richards?wasnt she the governor of Texas b/4 GWBush???/ worth seeing thanks again TCM
