Well, you can’t do better than this cast: Ronald Colman, Vilma Banky and newcomer Gary Cooper. Very, very nice.
This is the story of how water was brought to the Imperial Valley and it also concerns the romance of Vilma’s Barbara. She just can’t decide between Colman and Cooper. Poor lamb. Any time she wants to share a bit of that dilemma… Well-produced but rather bloated. The climactic flood is justly famous.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.After the Salton Sea is flooded by the Colorado River, Barbara decides on Colman.
If it were a dessert it would be: Lemon Curd Jumbo Pie Cupcakes. Very bright, very yellow, a bit overdone but generally a good thing.
Availability: Released on DVD by Warner Archive.
