Spaces were neither wide nor open in most early Sound Westerns. Not so in Cimarron. It starts with one of the most renowned giddy-ups in cinema history: a thundering recreation of the 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush.
From there Cimarron, based on the bestselling epic by Giant and Show Boat novelist Edna Ferber, traces the generations-spanning saga of that land. There rugged Yancey Cravat (Richard Dix) and his resourceful pioneer wife Sabra (Irene Dunne) sink roots, persevere, give shape to their dreams. It's a saga of change, told with an authenticity that moviegoers who had lived through that era recognized - and told with a skill that earned it three Academy Awards including Best Picture!

Comments about this product:
Strong acting on the part of characters which reminds of you of silent movies where actors had to really demonstrate what they were conveying. Black and white transfer is excellent and the story is a good one. There are also some social issues which pop up in a few places. Nice to know these same issues were around back then. I like this movie and will keep it in my collection for future viewing.
