Fred Zinneman's picturesque yarn may be set in Australia, but it's basically a big, family western about pioneering folk. Though very long and sprawling, it's exciting, full of human interest, and exceptionally well acted by Mitchum and Kerr. The supporting actors (especially Peter Ousting, Glynis Johns and Chips Rafferty) are no less memorable.
