Equitainment's Comments

This movie is an absolute classic and a must for all movie collectors. I have been really surprised at how many people don't know about it, as it was the last movie that both Clarke Gable and Marilyn Munroe ever made. Poor Clarke died within two days of the end of filming, and Marilyn was dead within six months.

It didn't have a great deal of success when it was first released, however it is very highly critically acclaimed. Many critics say it was Marilyns' best performance ever, proving without a doubt she had the ability to be a a great dramatic actress. Sadly she was just never given the opportunity, instead forever being type-cast as the ditzy blonde.

The story was also written by Marilyn's very famous playwright husband Arthur Miller, however they were going through the breakdown of their marriage throughout the shoot, and Marilyn drank heavily and rarely turned up on time for filming. The director John Huston was also frequently drunk throughout, but continued filming without causing too many problems.

All in all it's a great movie. Perhaps not one for those just looking for a great action adventure, but if you're a serious movie buff, then it's one you must have in your collection.

PS Some of the horse scenes are a bit harrowing (especially the breaking-in) so be careful if the young or sensitive are watching.




Product Overview
