The story begins in 1856, at which time Anna Nordholm (Alice MacMahon) appears to be at least 30 years old. By the time the story wraps up, in the early 1930s, this would put her well past 100, a bit of a stretch considering the life expectancy of that era. See more »

Until the story dredged itself into dreary cliches, this film reminded me of Citizen Kane. Many of the scenes are extremely well-put together; Mervyn LeRoy and Tony Gaudio are as good a team as Welles and Toland (an incredible fact when you view LeRoy's tepid output from the 50's). Paul Muni portrays a blonde cowboy (!), Aline McMahon is beautiful and strong, Mary Astor is scary, and many of the characters age (unbelievably) sixty years over the course of the film. Don't skip this one, it's a fascinating watch!
