Looking Back: Cimarron

I go back and do a video review for the fourth Best Picture winner, Cimarron (1931). This was the first Western to win Best Picture. The movie begins in the year 1889 and ends in 1929. Over those 40 years, larger-than-life Yancy Cravat (played by silent star Richard Dix) fights against outlaws and social injustices in a newly settled part of Oklahoma (which is not yet a state) while running an outspoken paper with his wife played by Irene Dunne.

The video review can be found here:
