Opening scene depicts wagon train crossing the west, which would have happened in the 1840s -1860s. The title card after this scene says "18 years later in Rollins, Texas". The following scenes shows Nasa being born and then approximately 20 years later Nasa riding her horse. Her father observes her whipping Moonglow from his 1930's auto. Therefore, about 40 years have transpired, suggesting the wagon train was crossing the west in 1890. Transcontinental rail travel was common by 1880. See more »
A neglected masterpiece with a bravura performance from Clara Bow.
What a film! Daring to tackle issues few films would even look at today. Stunningly photographed and directed, and with greater style than many early talkies. And at its heart is one of the best film performances ever - Clara Bow proves herself to be a magnificent actress in a role that demands she go through every possible emotion. What a loss it was to cinema when she retired, as great a loss as Garbo. Please MOMA get that restored print out on DVD, so that this great classic can be seen in all its glory!
