This film is set in a period of American history rarely covered in motion pictures. Due to the popularity of beaver fur for hats, trappers invaded the Rocky Mountains, still wild and not officially part of the United States.
Clark Gable stars as Flint Mitchell, a beaver trapper who takes a Blackfoot Indian woman as his wife with passionate result. The supporting cast is a who's who of cinema history; Ricardo Montalban (Fantasy Island) Adolphe Menjou, a veteran of films from the silent era.
Alan Napier (butler to Adam West's Batman) and J. Carrol Naish combine their talents in this magnificent panorama of epic Americana. Made in the last great days of the American studio system the craftsmanship in the making of this film has never been equalled. A great pictures, a great story and a great.
