    I didn't even know wide screen existed in 1930.What a pleasant surprise.I love Raoul Walsh so I borrowed a copy of the DVD from my library not knowing what was is store for me. That wide screen is amazing and the scenery is so beautiful and the camera stays long enough in a scene where you can look around in the background.What a good story too and all the hardships of a wagon train moving West and so real.Loved every minute of it.Ward Bond is there but not credited.John Wayne must have adopted his walk after this film.See it.Hopefully on TCM.

  • Pioneering Big Screen western classic

    Several years ago I saw a PBS show ondirector Raoul Walsh. This film was mentioned, and being a John Wayne fan, I had previously heard of it. The VHS version I later saw was OK, but now I have the new two-disc DVD restoration of the original 65 mm. which is amazing.The actors probably didn't have to "act"since the filming conditions were very similiar to the reality they were trying to portray. John Wayne (the first time he had used his new name given to him by Mr. Walsh, not his mentor John Ford} is too young for the part he plays, but his easy mannergrows on you. This restored version is recommeded for film "buffs" and any fan of westerns, orthe Duke.
