Retired, wealthy sea Captain Jame McKay arrives in the vast expanse of the West to marry fiancée Pat Terrill. McKay is a man whose values and approach to life are a mystery to the ranchers and ranch foreman Steve Leech takes an immediate dislike to him. Pat is spoiled, selfish and controlled by her wealthy father, Major Henry Terrill. The Major is involved in a ruthless civil war, over watering rights for cattle, with a rough hewn clan led by Rufus Hannassey. The land in question is owned by Julie Maragon and both Terrill and Hannassey want it.

One of the Biggest and Best24 October 2011

When this film came out it was considered quite an event. It was not just big in terms of its title but big in terms of running time - 165 minutes, and it needed an intermission. A thoroughly engrossing film with a powerful story line and great acting.
