When the Jayhawkers are collecting money from Clark Gable, during a close up view of him, in the far distance behind him, you can see what is a vehicle, maybe a truck moving along a road or highway. This is supposed to be 1866. See more »

Opening credits prologue: MONTANA TERRITORY 1866
They came from the South, headed for the goldfields...Ben and Clint Allison, lonely, desperate men. Riding away from a heartbreak memory of Gettysburg. Looking for a new life. A story of tall men - and long shadows. See more »
Jane's lookin' for a REAL tall man (and plenty of rainbows!)
Salty, surly star-driven western about a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, with would-be rancher Clark Gable vying with banker Robert Ryan for the hand of wisecrackin' Jane Russell. Good-looking, exceptional entertainment from director Raoul Walsh. Screenwriters Frank Nugent and Sidney Boehm adapted their script from a novel (credited either to Heck Allen or to Clay Fisher), smoothly intermingling jovial exchanges between the characters, Indian clashes, Mexican stand-offs, and Russell singin' in the wash-tub. Enjoyable of its type, nicely photographed by Leo Tover, with Gable giving a solid star-performance. **1/2 from ****
