INFORMATION FROM IMDb
In 1856, backwoods businessman Logan Stuart escorts Lucy Overmire, his friend's fiancée, back home to remote Jacksonville, Oregon; in the course of the hard journey, Lucy is attracted to Logan, whose heart seems to belong to another. Once arrived in Jacksonville, a welter of subplots involve villains, fair ladies, romantic triangles, gambling fever, murder, a cabin-raising, and vigilantism...culminating with an Indian uprising that threatens all the settlers. No canyon in sight.

"The Hedda Hopper Show - This Is Hollywood" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on October 19, 1946 with Susan Hayward reprising her film role.
In place of the glittering black-&-white Art Deco glass globe ("A Universal Picture") with rotating stars that opened Universal films from 1939-46, this early Universal Technicolor film opens with a still card, a colored globe with letters superimposed: "A Universal Picture".
At the beginning of the film, after Logan deposits his gold,
he is shown crossing the street in the rain. In the long shot he gets one foot on the sidewalk, but in the next closer shot he is still a few feet from the sidewalk and then steps onto it again.
