      Michael M It must be a pretty good movie to make me truly and completely hate the wife, Sabra. She is truly evil. She takes an honorable man, who wants only to do the right thing, as well as keep his own dignity and honor, and to continually disapprove of him, chase him away, and then, when he comes back, to do it again! I've never hated anyone more in any movie I've ever seen. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/26/23 Full Review steve d Better than the original but not good. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Plodding western epic from the Edna Faber novel. The story spans from the Oklahoma Land Rush to the WWI. The film boasts a solid director with Anthony Mann and a solid cast that includes Glenn Ford, Maria Schell, Anne Baxter, Arthur O'Connell, Russ Tamblyn, Mercedes McCambridge, Vic Morrow, Charles McGraw, Harry Morgan, and Edgar Buchanan, but overall, I found the film a pretty dull soap opera. Although handsomely produced, it's a pretty long slog at two and a half hours that feels even longer. Stick with George Stevens' "Giant" for a much better generational western soap opera epic. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Thinking as I have, upon seeing the two versions (on consecutive days) depicting the fourth (from April 22, 1889) of the five Oklahoma land rushes, I have to reconsider my initial impression that the 1931 film was marginally better than this, Mann's 1960 version. I realize I'm not a member of the Glenn Ford Fan Club by any stretch of the imagination, but his co-stars are WAY better, and in Anthony Mann, you find a master of both the Western and the epic format (his later 'The Fall of the Roman Empire' is one of my favourite films from the 60's). A jar of beeswax could have out-acted Richard Dix's performance in the original (it's a dirty rotten shame HE even got nominated for Best Actor, in a year when MANY outstanding actors were overshadowed, not being so honoured), but I have to admit Ford was good, even if IMHO he didn't deserve the honour of being front-and-center of a 2 1/2 hour epic, and you can't beat what Maria Schell, Anne Baxter, Harry Morgan and Vic Morrow--just to name a select few--brought to the picture. Some scenes in the 1931 original still work better, but overall I believe this is one case in which the remake is better than the original. I further would insist that had Mann not been fired and replaced by Charles Walters, it would have been a minor masterpiece. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member The kind of movie you fall asleep to on a Sunday afternoon. Nothing much to hold the interest. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member OK remake western but i prefer the 1931 pre0code version best Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
