Storyline

In 1845, trader Oliver Hale and his new wife are returning from New York City to California. In a New Orleans music hall, they meet and befriend an entertainer who uses the stage name of Florinda Grove. The dance hall singer is actually on the run from the New York City police since she's wanted for a murder, of which she claims to be innocent. The Hales believe her story, and help her escape the city under the guise of a widow bound for St. Louis on a riverboat. The newlyweds reach New Mexico where they plan to join a wagon train bound for California. In Santa Fe, the Hales bump into entertainer Florinda again.

Good movie; want to read the novel now
18 January 2019 | by charcas67See all my reviews

Republic pictures put out all the stops for them for this adaptation of the Gwen bistrow novel; class production values despite the backlot early Los Angeles set; good depiction of the friendship between Garnett and Floridan; their bond despite how opposite they are driven the story; Joan Leslie is very touching and sympathetic as Garnett; Vera ralston as Floridan isn't subtle or nuanced in her part but her flamboyance is lively and works well-too bad she didn't get more parts like this as she works well in such roles; I've a feeling a lot of the book was left out but the picture makes me want to read it; all in all a solid well produced and entertaining republic picture
