A movie about 1880's cattle ranching in Wyoming filmed entirely in California.

Opened in New York City and Los Angeles on a double bill with The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962).

This film barely broke even at the box office, earning MGM the small profit of $20,000 according to studio records.

One of the earliest American movies to use many close-ups, zooms, certainly inspired by the Italian Spaghetti westerns.
