| super production, but average western
The beginning of this film a glorification of California through music and some beautiful views in color. From then on it is a routine big budget western where only Barbara Stanwyck stands out as a woman with a strong character that uses her power of seduction. Ray Milland as Trumbo, a man who deserted (for noble reasons) is the hero and Barry Fitzgerald is Fabian, a good hearted man that becomes a politician to help Trumbo. Anthony Quinn has a very small role as Don Luis Rivera y Hernandez. The action scenes are very good, but they are not enough to prevent this western from being average. You can find the same director John Farrow and Ray Milland in a much better western, Copper Canyon (1950).
