With the help of Darryl Zanuck's millions and Louis Bromfield's doubtful dramatic talent another grand American screen epic has been born. "Brigham Young--Frontiersman" deals with the Mormon migration to Utah, with hatred and persecution in the good old days. The story is told with much sympathy and technical skill, but bogs down and struggles forward as painfully as the pioneers themselves.
From a fiery beginning packed with emotion and action "Brigham Young" rambles along exhaustively and exhaustingly, petering out into a banal love affair between Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell. By the time the sea gulls appear to save the Mormons' crops, the senses of the audience are dulled into unresponsive drowsiness. There is too much DcMillcan grandeur, too little DcMillcan zip. "Brigham Young" starts out as a fairly interesting document, but loses most by its entertainment value through its exasperating length and its unforgiveable failure to picture polygamy in more detail.
