This movie, if it still exists, is probably not very good. I have read the novel.It actually starts off very well, with interesting characters, then totally falls apart in the second half.Emerson Hough was a writer with great strengths and equally great weaknesses. In the Covered Wagon, and North of 36 his strengths were dominant, and these novels are still readable.In others, it is an ordeal to get through them, something you wouldn't want to do twice.He was at his best when dealing with ordinary people;when it came to hero, heroine and villain, they were the worse kind of wooden stereotype.The first part is a simple, believable story about interesting Western characters, the later part is so ridiculous, so far fetched that it is hard to believe that the same person wrote the entire novel.
