Goofs

Although the bulk of the story takes place in the early to mid-1920's, all of Susan Hayward's and Lola Albright's hairstyles and clothing, as well as those of the other female members of the cast, are strictly 1948. See more »

Quotes

Candy Williams: Cherokee. That sounds sort of Indian-ish.

Ripsnorting well-acted modern western
27 August 2001 | by (Leonia, NJ) – See all my reviews

The chemistry of the triangle is really good here, with Gough a worthy rival for Preston of fickle Hayward's affections with moral and character at the root of the question. Ed Begley is excellent in an early role. And, Pedro Armendariz steals the film as an American Indian who feels forced into action when promised conservation guidelines are reckless thrown aside for the profitability of the oil drillers. Very much worth watching
