In fur-trapping country, a man depends on his single-shot rifle and his courage. One of those men is Flint Mitchell (Clark Gable), who heads into Blackfoot territory with his fellow mountain men -- and with his new Blackfoot bride (María Elena Marqués) who may be the key to their safety in the dangerous land. 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. Adventure awaits Across the Wide Missouri
