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.Read more ›
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.
