Editors Note
Note When the founder of the Mormons, Joseph Smith (Vincent Price), is murdered, Brigham Young (Dean Jagger) takes over and leads his people west to Utah to escape persecution. Henry Hathaway's drama focuses on two of Young's people (Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell) as they endure the hardships of crossing the Rocky Mountains.
Plot Summary
Summary Tyrone Power stars as Jonathan Kent, a faithful follower of the renowned Mormon leader, Brigham Young.| After the Mormons suffer constant persecution for their beliefs, the reluctant Brigham Young decides to lead the congregation out of Illinois. En route, the charismatic preacher falls ill, allowing his rival Angus Duncan -- who from the start opposed the trip -- to persuade the followers to proceed to California, where the gold rush had begun. | While crossing the mountains of Utah, however, Young awakens from his delirium and announces that he's had a vision, and that Utah's great Salt Lake shall be their home. But this new land proves inhospitable, and the Mormons suffer a harrowing winter and an infestation of crickets in the spring. It seems only a miracle will help them survive.

Review Overall, Mormons and others interested in church history should definitely check this out. Fans of American history will also be interested to see how much Young actually affected things, and anyone who is a sucker for someone doing what they believe is right, against all odds, will also enjoy this one. Some leeway was taken with the Young story perhaps to make a good film, but nothing that will turn off the average movie-goer.

ReviewSource Film Freak Central
Review I was hoping, prior to watching Brigham Young, that the film would be a twisted smash-up of subject matter and Hollywood convention. I was sure that the touchy matter of Mormon ritual would send the movie in all directions at once, trying to salvage a normal film but twisting itself through ever more bizarre hoops. But while it does indeed get the production team scrambling to deal with that pesky polygamy issue, Brigham Young is mostly just a dull problem-picture crossed with a boring western, with no real surprises to offer anyone who was born a little before yesterday.
