Quotes

Charlotte Dunterry: This is pretty country you're having round here.
Stonewall Elliott: 'Been having it a long time.
Charlotte Dunterry: You were born here?
Stonewall Elliott: My father told me once it was bad manners to ask anybody where they were born. He said, if they were from Virginia you'd know it in ten minutes. And if they weren't, it wasn't polite to humiliate them by asking 'em!

southern flag-waving in technicolor
18 January 2012 | by jimakrosSee all my reviews

this is one of very few color pictures made,up to that time,so its interesting if only for that.The cast is great looking,MacMurray and Madeleine Carroll made many movies together,here one also gets a very young Sterling Hayden.This was supposedly shot on location ,which was very uncommon in those days,and it shows in a beautiful horseriding sequence.The story is pure southern flag-waving,the south is represented by the MacMurray character,who is a poor,educated,honest farmer full of ideals about southern tradition.The yankees are a bunch of ignorant,too rich with too much time on their hands folk,who are only interested in a good time.Anyway,if one gets over the flag-waving ,its still a goodlooking picture with some attractive actors.
