Goofs

In the interior scene where Tone drives Hopkins back to granddad's farm, the back-projected dirt road is clearly seen through the rear window of the auto. Switching to an exterior shot, Tone stops the car to open a gate, drive the car through, close the gate and continue driving. The next interior shot with the rear window, however, shows only the same dirt road already seen, with no gated fence receding in the distance, as it should. See more »

Quotes

Grandpa Storr: From where we're standing here, down there to the river, is the old Storr place. My father settled in 1830. I remember the little Indian girl. We used to play down there in that grove. A squaw spanked me once. Once!

A delicate film, plenty of little marvellous details. I do not know why we cannot watch this film more times on television, because it is, in my opinion, the best film that King Vidor ever filmed. And I could watch it again and again.
