I agree with all the previously positive opinions on this movie. Thomas Mitchell is an excellent actor who uniquely is found in most of Hollywood's better award-wining movies from the late 30's to the late fifties. He never has a mediocre performance. Errol Flynn was at his best prior to this movie but still his skill is clearly demonstrated. Ann Sheridan plays the part of a " strong woman " by donning mens' clothing in her pursuit of being a business woman with her silver mining husband. Typical of most movies prior to the mid-60's; there is either one or no comment on woman cross-dressing into cowboy duds. Errol does say in the script " you look very silly wearing pants "; Ann claims " I borrowed them from my brother " and " would look more silly not wearing any right now " . Her pants are slim fitted, showing her beautiful feminine figure, allowing for them to be tucked into tall mens' riding boots. She cuts a very seductive figure in her " brother's borrowed clothes ".
