Trivia

Bob Burns was known for a bizarre musical instrument that he invented and which he plays in this film. Basically a long tube with a cone on the end called a "bazooka". GIs in WW2 took the name for the rocket firing anti-tank weapon since it resembled the instrument. See more »

Wonderful light comedy/western
7 March 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like this movie as it represents a different style & is refreshing. The costumes & scenery are outstanding & quite something to see especially in colour. I can watch this movie over & over again without being bored. The characters are well played & entertaining. I'm glad I came across it & thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a nice change to see Randolph Scott play a different type of role & I think he must have had 'fun' doing this movie. Gypsy Rose Lee is perfect in her role as the "Belle of the Yukon". Dinah Shore is well suited as the 'Nightingale of the North' with her singing. The comedic undertones add a lift to the movie & keeps it rolling. All in all this is a light & entertaining type of movie.
