Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 11/18/1985
"...It's a splendid entertainment....The film's look and feel seem way ahead of its time..."
USA Today - 05/30/2003
"...It comes off as one of the better early talkies..."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2008
"This is a wagon-train movie with Wayne's scout at the center....It's interesting to see his persona in this embryonic form....What's really compelling is the authenticity of the wagon train's journey."

Product Description:

Pioneers heading for Oregon endure the hardships of weather, unfriendly strangers and internal strife in this sophisticated early sound film. Featuring John Wayne in his first starring role, this straightforward Western tale is now overshadowed by its place in history as an early example of Fox's widescreen Grandeur process, its naturalistic sound, and prototypical Wayne performance.
