I enjoyed this extravaganza for the smorgasbord of fine actors of half a century ago. Sure, it's corny. But I like corny (although I must admit I fast forwarded through most of Debbie Reynolds' musical portions -- ackk!). The premise is a little scattered, but it was a perfect movie for a snowy Sunday afternoon. Beautifully filmed with some tremendous stunts. I can't even begin to fathom the buffalo stampede in its original glorious Cinerama format. The experience truly must've taken one's breath away. Bonus documentary disc on Cinerama is absolutely fascinating.

Narrator: "The West that was won by its pioneers, settlers, adventurers, is long gone now. Yet it is theirs forever, for they left tracks in history that will never be eroded by wind or rain; never plowed under by tractors; never buried in the compost of events. Out of the hard simplicity of their lives -- out of their vitality, their hopes, and their sorrows, grew legends of courage and pride to inspire their children and their children's children. From soil enriched by their blood, out of their fever to explore and build, came lakes where once, were burning deserts; came the goods of the earth: mines and wheat fields, orchards and great lumber mills. All the sinews of a growing country. Out of their rude settlements, their trading posts, came cities to rank among the great ones of the world. All the heritage of a people free to dream, free to act, free to mold their own destiny."
