Haven't read the novel, but really enjoyed the picture.
The film has so much warmth from its characters. The direction was nice. The stunt work was amazing, quite incredible how it was all achieved.
The film maybe missing the finer points of the novel, but for many people who haven't read it, the film delivers an interesting portrayl of how capitalism takes over the inner lands of America. The evolution of the characters, from being poor to being greedy. The film features many other themes, including infidelity and racism.
The picture could've been 30 minutes longer.
Glenn Ford is brilliant, as is Maria Schell, albeit with an annoying accent.
Enjoyed the direction by Mann and the photography wasn't bad at all.
Overall, an enjoyable film! See it in wide-screen.
