I really, really liked this movie. I was entranced when I saw it on TV when I was 8 years old and I saw it again when I was 38. So many times I am disappointed when I watch a movie as an adult that I loved as a child. I am hoping that it will have the same impact on me and that I will love it just as much. Too often that just doesn't happen. THIS movie did not disappoint!! It takes off at the very beginning with Mary Stewart, brilliantly portrayed by Eleanor Parker, setting her cap for the handsome Bushrod Gentry, just as brilliantly portrayed by Robert Taylor. She schemes to marry him and then proceeds to follow him all over the wilderness. There is a hilarious sequence of events when Mary Stewart and Bushrod are hiding from the Indians.
This is a great guy movie AND a great chick flick rolled into one. This movie has it all - comedy, gun-play, drama, pathos, and a great score with a little ditty that gets in your head and won't soon leave.
The higher up the berry tree The sweeter grow the berries The more you hug and kiss a girl The more she'll want to marry!
