This review is of the Italian release which has the original b&w film as well as a colourised version.

I first saw the film many years ago on TV and have it recorded onto VHS tape. It is an excellent lighthearted western with romance bubbling under the surface and a decent touch of drama towards the end. The first rate script is well delivered by all concerned. Upon purchase, I decided to watch the colour version and I am amazed at how well they do this ! It looks entirely natural and, though I am a fan of authentic b&w films, I am no longer tempted to watch the 'original'.

The story is delightful - unhurried but never without interesting developments. The film is dated in the year I was born (1948) and is a strong contender to make my list of top ten favourite westerns.

This is a delightful light-hearted period romantic comedy/drama set in the mid-19th century mid-west.

The romance is fairly subtle with robert mitchum and william holden competing for 'Rachel'. Mitchum is surprisingly effective in a comic role and even sings well!

A lovely rainy Sunday afternoon piece of escapism.

I first saw this on the big screen (I'm old!) and tho a bit dated it's a nice story. Loretta, who is always a cross between Mother Teresa and Lady Diana, does her usual great job as does Williams Holden. So nice to see Robert Mitchum playing a good guy. It's worth having in your classic collection.

Even though it took about 15 to 20 minutes for me to get into this film, it was worth the DVD price. A very good plot once it got going. Very good performances from Robert Mitcham and William Holden, some really good scenes throughout the majority of the film.

I first saw this film many years ago and I loved it. Some time ago it was shown on T.V. and I enjoyed it even more. It was only recently that I managed to get a copy and it has been played many times. A gentle love story, perhaps a little corny in places but a downright good film. I wish there were more like it!!

A widower (William Holden) in the colonial wilderness decides he needs a wife to help him raise his son (Gary Gray) so he goes to the local settlement where he buys an indentured servant (Loretta Young) and takes her as his wife. The relationship between them remains platonic until a traveling man (Robert Mitchum) visits and takes an interest in her and Holden begins to re-assess the situation. This is a heartwarming western tale that manages to avoid sentimentality and more concerned with its characters' inability to communicate rather than action though there is a spirited Shoshone attack at the end of the film. The screenplay by Waldo Salt (MIDNIGHT COWBOY) based on the Howard Fast (SPARTACUS) short story is solid and Norman Foster's quiet and unobtrusive direction lets the three stars shine. Young is actually displays a modest sex appeal while Holden and Mitchum demonstrate a reserved masculine charm though the young Gray can't disguise that fake child actor behavior so prevalent in the so called "Golden Age" of Hollywood. With Tom Tully, Frank Ferguson and Sara Haden.

The Odeon DVD from Great Britain is an above average transfer.
