Wonderful movie. Upbeat, with great singing(Of course).
Every time I watch this movie I have the same reaction. Too idealistic for our tastes today; yet as a showcase for Eddy & MacDonald, with some fun thrown in, it is great.
Like Zane Grey westerns, the characters are rather stylized and two-dimensional. However, again like Zane Grey characters, they tend to demonstrate qualities that we wish were reality.
What a supporting cast.
Walter Pidgeon - very believable as the strong, fiercely passionate sheriff with his own strict code of ethics.
Buddy Ebsen, Leo Carrillo, Monty Woolley, H.B.Warner.
I have been surprised over the years how some men, that are rough and rather crude with each other, will display real protectiveness and gentleness in other areas. Therefore, the behaviour shown by the miners toward 'Girl', adopted as kind of a 'mascot' is credible and necessary for us to accept her sweetness.
Suspend your cynicism, enjoy the fine music and a glimpse into a simpler time!
