I must say, this is one of my favorite Westerns of all time. Sort of like "Shane", it is full of emotion, and mood. When Cable comes home from the "Struggle", his wife is still resentful of his leaving her and the children, even though they had heard he had been killed. I love Harry Cary Jr's line, "Well I'll Bow" when he sees Cable riding up. And Cable's comment to his wife, I don't want to live with someone that doesn't like me, "I'll take you back to Texas if you want". Their struggle with their relationship, and the local Union Sympathizers is a great tale. I recommend this movie to all. Very true to life. Good Acting, Great Story.
