Across The Wide Missouri (1951)


William A. Wellman


Talbot Jennings (screenplay), Talbot Jennings (story)


Clark Gable, Ricardo Montalban, John Hodiak

Clark Gable is the largely nonheroic hero of the sprawling western Across the Wide Missouri. A cunning trapper who lives purely by his wits, Gable avoids being scalped by the Blackfoot Indians by marrying Maria Elena Marques, the chief's daughter. This marriage of convenience also allows Gable to trap to his heart's content in Blackfoot territory. After bearing a child, Marques is killed by a warring tribe; the opportunistic Gable at first considers abandoning the child, but at long last does right by the boy. Adolphe Menjou steals the show as an eternally inebriated French trapper, while Ricardo Montalban and J. CARROLL NAISH are convincing (and noncondescending) in their Native American characterizations.

  1. rousing adventure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 28th 2020

    A terrific adventure story of a "mountain man" (a believable Clark Gable) in early America, as if told by his son. Lots of humor and action with an interesting plot and amusing characters. Ricardo Montalban is a fierce native American who believes the only good white man is a dead white man. Naturally, Ricardo and Clark are deadly enemies. Filmed almost entirely outdoors in glorious color, this movie is a treat.
