| I agree with "chisum" from Hartlepool England - An enjoyable show
The movie is quite dated and a bit silly - on the other hand it is based on a true story as shown in the movie, and is well done - if not somewhat camp, certainly by current movie standards.

My biggest problem with it was the treatment of the lack of realistic emotion in a movie that contains so much tragedy.

The end is not particularly surprising. This is a Hollywood movie from the forties.

Again it falls into the category of "camp."

I agree with "chisim,"

The performances were very good particularly Gary Cooper.
