Storyline

In the 1830's beaver trapper Flint Mitchell and other white men hunt and trap in the then unnamed territories of Montana and Idaho. Flint marries a Blackfoot woman as a way to gain entrance into her people's rich lands, but finds she means more to him than a ticket to good beaver habitat.

Trivia

Most of the "Native Americans" in this movie are all portrayed by Hispanic or Caucasian actors, because there was a noticeable lack of Native American actors at MGM at the time this movie was made. See more »

Goofs

When the horse with Gable's son runs away. the child is originally on the right side of the horse. The succeeding shot shows him on the left side of the horse. Later shots show him back on the right side. The anomalous shot is shown again later with the baby now on the correct (right) side, indicating that the film had been flipped. See more »

A good story featuring rugged realism
18 February 2000 | by (Portland Oregon) – See all my reviews

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.
