Format: DVD
This film is interesting for several reasons. If you are a history buff, you'll enjoy the picture of life on the Erie Canal as the canal-boat people came to the realization that the railroad was there to stay and meant the death of canal traffic.More important to old movie fans, this was Henry Fonda's first movie role, and he is aw-shucks wonderful. Janet Gaynor's portrayal of her feisty character shows that good acting holds up over the decades. Finally, the character actors, including Charles Bickford, Margaret Hamilton and Andy Devine. Jane Withers, child actor, plays a small part. The plot is a bit hokey, and people tend to break into song for barely discernible reasons. And of course the trips down the canal look hokey to us today, with the projected backgrounds. But the acting, plus the delicious good looks of Henry Fonda make up for those dated qualities.

When I first saw who was starring in this film I was interested. It was a good film and definitely a star studded film.

Living in upstate New York and having an interest in local history we have been fascinated by the history of the Erie Canal. This film depicts the canal quite accurately, though it was actually filmed on a different canal. The story line was sufficiently interesting to make the film worth seeing even if you don't much care about the canal itself, but you should. It played a huge role in the creation of this great nation. Without the Erie Canal our westward expansion would have been much more difficult and slower.

The quality is quite good considering the age of the film and it's interesting to see Henry Fonda in his first film role.
