James R. Webb's screenplay, Ford's direction and the splendid acting of the cast make this an impressive film.

A sort of frontier Exodus that's filmed with a majestic passion for the wild lands and for its indigenous dwellers.

Somewhere in the telling, the original premise of the Mari Sandoz novel is lost sight of in a wholesale insertion of extraneous incidents which bear little or no relation to the subject.

Over-long, often clichd and uneven (there are comic interludes complete with cameo performances), but still imbued with moments of true poetry, thanks largely to William Clothier's magnificent Panavision landscapes.

Cheyenne Autumn is a strong film, grandly directed and expertly played by a large cast.
