-- Lyric Western about a Mormon wagon train whose leader (Ward Bond) hires a pair of genial cowboys (Ben Johnson and Harry Carey, Jr.) to guide them to Utah, encountering along the way a broken-down patent medicine show (Alan Mowbray and Joanne Dru), a band of Navaho Indians and some vicious killers on the run from a posse. Director John Ford's poetic homage to the pioneer spirit is embued with the natural grandeur of the terrain as well as an appreciation of the faith needed to journey into the wilderness and the courage required to withstand the perils of the trail. Frontier violence.(A-I) (br)
