I was a bit confused when I started watching this film because I thought it was a western vehicle for Glenn Ford and Ida Lupino, but when neither of them show up for the first 20 minutes of the film, I started wondering if I'd recorded the right film. It was the right film, but the story unfolds in an unnecessary wrap around story about the grandson of Ford searching for his grandfather's lost gold mine. The story of prospector Ford and his greedy wife Lupino is an entertaining western melodrama, but the wraparound story just seemed like filler and bogged the film down.
