Hydraulic Mining versus Sacramento Valley Farming.
Did You Know?
In an early scene in which Jared Whitney (George Brent
) signs a hotel register, the close-up of the register page shows that the names immediately above Whitney's are "Mr. & Mrs. Donald Siegel, Sonora Cal". Don Siegel
, later to gain fame as director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers
(1956) and Dirty Harry
(1971), and for mentoring a budding director named Clint Eastwood
, was in charge of the second unit that made such insert shots for Warner Brothers movies in the late 1930s. See more
After the office meeting with the mining syndicate in San Francisco, Whitney hands a letter to a secretary, addressed to Serena. The writing on the envelope is clearly different from the initial shot to the close-up. See more
