Ford is perfect in this role. The cinematography, including the wagons racing to claim their land, was outstanding. Anne Baxter gives a great performance as the woman Ford leaves for another woman. Great suspense and drama, bold sweeping action, and a wonderful plot perfectly cast and filmed. An essential part of any western collection. I haven't seen the original Cimarron yet, but I cannot imagine telling the story any better. The ending is great too, powerful and patriotic. This is a timeless classic of epic proportions and beautiful storytelling.

Maybe I was spoiled by the 1931 version of this film. In particular the very hammy portrayal of Yancey by Richard Dix has come to grow on me just as Irene Dunne's wonderful portrayal of Sabra. That film won an unbelievable Best Picture Oscar and even a Best Actor nomination for Dix. This movie is far superior to the original, especially with Glenn Ford as Yancey playing it straight this time. It confronts head-on the social issues that the original just skirts around, yet in doing this it just seems to take on too much. The film is about an ill-matched couple that settles in Oklahoma during the land rush years and how things progress between the two of them as the years roll on. Yancey is a wanderer at heart, and can't help taking off every time a new frontier beckons. His wife, Sabra, wants Yancey to settle down and raise a family. As a result of Yancey's adventurous ways it is left to Sabra to bear the burden of taking care of the business and the children. You'll probably like this one more if you haven't seen the original.

This film is being released on DVD both individually and as part of Warner Home Video Western Classics Collection (Escape from Fort Bravo / Many Rivers to Cross / Cimarron 1960 / The Law and Jake Wade / Saddle the Wind / The Stalking Moon). If you like western classics, buying the boxed set might be a more economical way to go. There are no extra features in the boxed set or the individual movies except a theatrical trailer per film.

"Cimarron" is a 1960 color western from Anthony Mann starring Glenn Ford and Maria Schell. The film chronicles 40 critical years in the formation of Oklahoma, from the early land rush days in 1889 through statehood. It was based on the 1929 Edna Ferber (1885-1968) novel. Ferber was the Pulitzer Prize winning writer whose other works include "Show Boat" (1926), "American Beauty" (1931), "Dinner at Eight" (1932), and "Giant" (1952).

The main character, played by Glenn Ford, is based partly on Sam Houston's youngest son, Temple (1860-1905). Houston was a lawyer known for his unorthodox behavior and flamboyant dress, and he was also a deadly fighter with a gun. Some of the scenes in the novel and the film were taken directly from Houston's life.

Quiet and handsome Glenn Ford (1916-2006) appeared in more than 100 films from 1937 to 1991. He was nominated for a Golden Globe 3 times and won once ("Pocketful of Miracles" in 1961). Ford could do light comedy (e.g., "Teahouse of the August Moon", "Courtship of Eddie's Father", "Don't Go Near the Water") as well as drama (e.g., "Blackboard Jungle", "3:10 to Yuma"). He enjoyed playing the everyman and said that "it gives the audience someone real to identify with. I never play anyone but myself on screen."

One of the key problems with this film is that the main character, Yancy, is a charismatic albeit contradictory man, and is so far from the "everyman" that Ford played that the true nature is lost on screen. In the 1931 version, Richard Dix captured the spirit of Yancy much better, making the original version a much better film.

Austrian born Maria Schell (1926-2005) plays Yancy's wife.

Clancy (Glenn Ford) portrays the atypical hero of an era gone but not forgotten. His penchant for fun adventure and excitement, always accompanied by goodness and virtue, soon find him at odds with his beautiful new wife. Even though their newspaper business flourishes with potential and periodic problems Clancy's internal restlessness drives him on to War and remote engagements while his dutiful wife attends to the newly founded entity set in the heart of Oklahoma immediately after land rush. Nostalgic movie goers who rarely see the raw character of courage so eloquently presented in films today will relish this return to the adventure of a "humble and reluctant hero." Prepare to shed a tear or two and enjoy a hearty laugh. But Cimmaron will not quickly retire from your memory once you've watched it.

Ford is perfect for this role, and the story is told very well. Fantastic cinematography, including wagons and horses racing to claim land and Ford's strong moral stand at a party with big-time politicians trying to change his views. Timeless and powerful. I loved the ending and Anne Baxter's performance. A great plot with suspense and unpredictable consequences. Very handsome movie, with strong cast.

This is an epic western. That makes it a little long, but it is worth watching. You might think that this movie will just bore you because it is so long. The main character is involved in many stories and trips which you get to see, but at some point they seem to run together with little point. However, it will all make sense at the end. In the meantime, Glenn Ford is at his best as a cowboy. The action is all very good and the language is as well. What you also learn from this one is that some men are just made to wander regardless of what is in their lives. All in all, in spite of the length, it is a great movie.
