Mitchell is a rough, buckskinned man of action and Gable shows he's more than rough enough to portray him in a brawling, breathtakingly beautiful frontier tale. William A. Wellman directs, filming in the Colorado Rockies and combining spectacular Technicolor vistas with colorful characters who don't let the hardships of wilderness life get in the way of a good time.
