Great movie of important historic significance.....
30 January 2012 | by (Regina, SK. Canada) – See all my reviews

I actually saw this movie in 1961 when it was world-wide premiered at our theatre (The Capitol Theatre) here in Regina, SK.

From this date forward, I fell in love with the beautiful Cypress Hills area, here in our great Province of Saskatchewan in Canada! You understand that, with it's altitude, only certain flora and fauna are unique to this area as The Cypress Hills area is the highest elevation in Canada East of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! Of course the Cypress Hills was the original site for the movie shoot - The Canadians! I would love to buy a DVD copy of this film. Can anyone help me ?? Thank you, Joe Lomas, Regina, SK
