Realism and attention to detail highlight this otherwise routine tale of the opening of the west by mountain-men. Gable's performance is somewhat subdued in his portrayal of a trapper that takes on an Indian wife in hostile territory. The scenery is pretty and the story moves at a good clip with an exciting finale.
