Storyline

In 1845, trader Oliver Hale and his new wife are returning from New York City to California. In a New Orleans music hall, they meet and befriend an entertainer who uses the stage name of Florinda Grove. The dance hall singer is actually on the run from the New York City police since she's wanted for a murder, of which she claims to be innocent. The Hales believe her story, and help her escape the city under the guise of a widow bound for St. Louis on a riverboat. The newlyweds reach New Mexico where they plan to join a wagon train bound for California. In Santa Fe, the Hales bump into entertainer Florinda again. While Oliver Hale is away on a short business trip, a messenger from his brother Charles Hale arrives in town, bringing a special letter from Charles. In the letter, Charles explains that Carmelita Velasco, the daughter of a wealthy landowner, claims to be pregnant with Oliver's child and that she and her family expect Oliver to do the right honorable thing and marry her.

Poor reflection of a wonderful, prize winning book.
5 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a wonderful story which was the most poorly cast movie I've ever seen. I've read the book 20+ times in my life (obviously a favorite!) but the casting person obviously didn't waste their time doing the same even once. The book has rich characters which the movie didn't bring out. Overall, terribly disappointing.

Florinda was the blonde, not Hispanic. Garnet had the black hair (I guess in the movies in those days, blondes were the good girls and dark hair was the bad...kind of like the white hat/black hat cowboys!

A perfect cast (impossible because of age differences) would have Gary Cooper as John, William Shatner as Oliver, Kirk Douglas as Texas and James Cagney as Oliver's brother, to name a few! That's just part of my dream cast.

My advice is to go get the book from the library!
