      Audience Member Really good movie here highly recommend it, James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, July 31, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review Audience Member a fair to good railroad western film a great crash of two steam locmtives at the end..nice horses to Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Breathtaking scenery and old pros ZaSu Pitts and Dean Jagger help but this is mediocre at best with a surprisingly hammy O'Brien. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This splendid melodrama has thrilling footage of railroad action that would be impossible to capture today in it's original location with genuine articles. It's great fun to watch, a real popcorn boo and cheer - mature situations are handled intelligently, but highly stylized in the fashion of 1950s Hollywood. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
