After the world premiere in Cincinnati, Ohio, the New York Office of M-G-M ordered 30 minutes to be cut from the film, since exhibitors complained about its length. In his autobiography, King Vidor says he expected the cuts to come out of the documentary footage in the film, but that footage was already wedded to the music. So the cuts came out of the dramatic portions. Many of the actors listed in the cast may not be seen in the 121-minute cut version which Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has shown. See more »

As A career merchant seaman on the Great Lake's ore carriers, and working for a large steel maker, I found this movie most interesting and well done. This motion picture contains many historical shots of early lake vessels at the locks in Sault Ste. Marie and docking in Gary, Indiana. The story seems to be based on the life of Andrew Carnegie who was also an immigrant from Scotland. My family came from the Pittsburgh area and were employed with a large steel company, so I can relate well to the plot. Brian Donlevey visited aboard some of our vessels while making this movie in the port of Gary, Indiana. I liked this movie and watch it when I find it advertised to be shown on TV. I would own it if I could buy it because of its historical value..
