Characteristically, De Mille brought an epic sense of scale to the western with this story of the construction of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Mixed in with all the historical elements is a love triangle between a troubleshooter (McCrea), a gambler (Preston), and a train engineer’s daughter (Stanwyck). The director was mesmerised by Stanwyck’s performance, and she became one of his favourite stars.
