Western Movie Matinees: Frontier Clergy – Brigham Young

Fleeing persecution, Latter-Day Saints church leader Brigham Young (Dean Jagger) leads a wagon train of Mormons west in search of a peaceful place to settle. But is it really to God’s revelation he is responding, or is it his own ambition? And are the hardships along the way signs of God’s displeasure?  Headlined by romantic leads Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell, what this film lacks in historical accuracy, it makes up in entertainment value. 114 minutes. Appropriate for ages 10+.
