Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker star as a Kentucky backwoodsman and the woman who will NOT let anything interfere with her plans to marry him in this humorous romantic adventure through the American Frontier of 1798.
Bushrod Gentry mentions going to the Northwest Territories several times. This would place the time of the film somewhere between 1787 and 1803. It encompassed and area that would eventually become the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota. In the scenes regarding Cadmus getting spectacles, George Washington is spoken of as if he is still alive, so that would narrow the date ranger further to 1787 and 1799.
Sometimes I'm bigger than I look.
Opening card: We respectfully dedicate our story to the frontier women of America who helped their men settle the Kentucky wilderness. They were gallant and courageous, and without their aggressive cooperation -- few of us would be around to see this picture.
