    Gary Cooper's first important film

    Posted by Armin Winfried Braun on Oct 20th 2020

    Considering that the film was made almost 100 years ago, the story is exceptionally good. The production is very professional and not only the three "stars" play well but also all of the supporting actors. I especially enjoyed seeing this film for the first time, since I'm an ardent Gary Cooper fan.
