random thoughts

Not a big Hathaway fan at all--his movies are always too long and could have been handled better by someone more talented. This was surprisingly good, though Hawks or Ford could have delivered something great and certainly touched up the script a bit.

Its climax is terrible but the pacing saves the movie.

If you can't handle the Ford or Wayne brand of humor, stay away from this one.

I thought this one got better as went along (discounting the climax). 

I don't really understand the shot of the rainbow-ish, sort of cosmic constellation-ish sort of thing in the sky used in the cabin scenes but I thought it was a good departure and I wish the rest of the movie was handled as nicely.

The bit at the mine was pretty good. It could have been better but it was clever.

On a side note, I don't really understand how Wayne could have been drunk the entire time spent with Angel played by Capucine. I thought that was handled poorly. Wayne seemed sober the next day at the tree climb lol.

That was supposed to be the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
