  • Not obviously a DeMille picture

    As in many of DeMille's other films, this one has lots of detailed business going on in many scenes (as in the pre-sailing of the riverboat), but it lacks a large set piece like the train wrecks in Union Pacific, the sinking ships in Reap the Wild Wind, and the colossal sets of the biblical epics. I am personally not a fan of Cooper's aw-shucks acting style, so that detracted from my enjoyment. I love Jean Arthur, but felt she wasn't quite right for this. It's a well-photographed movie (except for the obvious riding-the-horse-in-front-of-a-projection-screen stuff). and still better than 90% of the dreck being shown in theaters today.

  • love it

    this movie is not historicly accurate,however the acting and story is superb.the scene with the river boat gambler and gary cooper is one of my favorites.the watch that plays a chime is the best prop. wild bill isplayed by a very young gary cooper. his understated actions and minimal dialougue is priceless. this serves him well for the next 20 yrs.
