Culver City, CA: Selznick International, 1946. Four vintage borderless reference photographs and two vintage bordered reference photographs of director King Vidor on the set of the 1946 Western film. Three linen-backed with printed mimeo snipes affixed to the verso.

Based on Niven Busch's 1944 novel. Two brothers fight over their love for a young relative while their father attempts to sway railroad builders from constructing a new line on his land. A lavish "epic" Western from Selznick, who saw the film as a definite successor to his monumental "Gone With the Wind" (1939).

Set in Texas, shot on location in Arizona and California.

Two 9.5 x 7.25 inches, two 10 x 8 inches. Generally Very Good plus, with light creasing and wear on the edges.

Hardy, p. 152. Pitts 1187.
