My ONLY regret about this movie is that I didn't go with my wife and her brother to see it in the theater. Its magnificent scenery is paled on the small screen. As for the plot, it's the classic "boy turns into a man" tale. Jim Craig's father dies and Jim must move off the mountain until he's earned the right to live on the mountain.
He's a prideful young man and falls in love with a powerful rancher's daughter who he has more in common with than he realizes. Rather than spoil the plot, take my word for it, this is a great movie. No, it does not have the best acting in the world; however, Sigrid Thornton is a noted Australian actress on a par with some our own American actresses. This movie is a must see and the soundtrack will stick in your mind for years...it's even used as the intro music for one of the network's golf broadcasts.
