This sweeping story of a huge Texas cattle ranch over several decades lives up to its name, but I think falls short of its clear ambition to be “Gone With the Wind, but as a Western.”
A (very) widescreen western about the consequences of violence, or something, which I would’ve enjoyed more if not for the super-whiny little kid.
A somewhat dated melodrama about people who are deeply unhappy despite being extremely pretty. One of them falls out of a rowboat.
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers bringing dancing to maybe its greatest heights. The rest of the movie, who cares?
