Goofs

When Mr Forbes (Jim Backus) runs out of the General Store to join the parade, he is carrying a valve trombone (which would be in keeping with the type of trombone mostly used in the late 19th century). Later at the band concert, he is playing a slide trombone with no explanation for the switch. See more »

A jerk trapper gets a beautiful stone in his boots!!
17 May 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Write something about Audie Murphy is a pleasure, a have almost all your pictures at a very special spot in my collection, he made a fortune on those B-westerns, earned much more money that some many famous actors, his charisma brought to him countless followers like myself, in another fantastic performance Audie plays a jerk trapper who is charge from his priceless uncle to sell all furs, in the middle he gets almost a gift a young blonde girl, trying out find a job to her on the crowed town, there he stays enchanted by a woman which shall see has an "Easy Life", a matter of fact that he actually wasn't civilized enough to understand how works a modern city on west, he has funniest moments to share us, Sandra Dee was gorgeous in this role, plays a perfect young innocent girl from the countryside, the chemistry is quite noticed, all viewers stayed anxious practically the entire movie for the best endind!!!
