Worth a watch
17 March 2013 | by (South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I originally watched this because I'm a fan of Greer Garson, Dana Andrews, period pieces, and westerns. These are still all great reasons to watch this film. I gained a few others, too, like the well-done portrayal of Spurs by Lois Smith, the rival doctors in a small town drama who are, of course, Garson and Andrews, and the lovely Technicolor where we get to see Garson in all her true, red-haloed glory.

This isn't an awful film. I might even watch it again someday. However, all of the positive elements failed to add up to equal the caliber of film both of these actors had made many times before. Also, Dana Andrews looked a bit too young for Garson as he often did with a costar who wasn't at least 5 years younger or more. He had a young face even for a man with a drinking problem. I adore both of these actors, but this might have been a good time to match Garson with Pidgeon one more time. You can hardly beat that teaming;) They could have added some humor and it might have turned out to be more than "worth a watch" for me. Also, I chalk it off to poor writing, Cameron Mitchell's usual overacting, and not much romantic tension between the leads (bad casting there as I really like each actor separately).

If you are a fan of these actors or westerns or bored and prefer classics to other films, then I recommend watching it purely on the fact that it is beautifully shot and Greer Garson, with her gentle demeanor and lovely beauty and voice, can make even a fairly bad picture better:)
