Movies Across the Wide Missouri (MGM 1951, Clark Gable, Ricardo Montalban) Published 5 months ago on January 1, 2019 Native-American relations with white settlers in early 19th century America provide the dramatic focus here. The time is 1829 and trapper Flint Mitchell heads into the wilderness in search of valuable beaver pelts. In order to get a foothold in the hostile Blackfoot Indian territory, Mitchell marries a Blackfoot squaw, and then finds himself truly in love. Accompanied by a band of intrepid trappers, the newlyweds press deep into the untamed land despite persistent aggression from its angry native inhabitants. Spectacular Rocky Mountain photography makes this one a visual treat. When preview audiences for Across the Wide Missouri complained the story was confusing, Howard Keel was brought in to provide a voiceover narration. Keel had made his film debut just the year before in Annie Get Your Gun (1950). production details US | 78 minutes | 1951 Director: William A.
