Epics win; they almost always do. Cimarron is a mammoth movie. Hollywood had learned a lot by this point. The epic scenes of the Oklahoma Land Rush were probably the most well-executed scequences of the film. With an epic film, those scenes are really easy. It is the intimate scenes wherein the personal plot exists, that is difficult. These were rather rough and rushed. They are locked in the past theatrical style designed for "melor-drama" on the stage. Irene Dunne is by far the stand-out performance of the film. Her level of character development far exceeds that of her castmates. I would recommend this film for those who are either fans of Edna Feber's work, or those who love the history/art of the genre of film.
