More About Cimarron by Edna Ferber; Julie Gilbert
 
 
 
Overview
The basis for the Academy Award-winning major motion picture starring Best Actor nominee Richard Dix and Best Actress nominee Irene Dunne.
This vivid and sweeping tale of the Oklahoma Land Rush, from Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Ferber, traces the stunning challenges of settling an untamed frontier. Staking claim to their new home in Osage, Yancey Cravat, a spellbinding criminal lawyer, and his wife, well-bred Sabra, work against seemingly overwhelming odds to create a prosperous life for themselves. And as they establish themselves in this lawless land, Sabra displays a brilliant business sense and makes a success of their local newspaper, the "Oklahoma Wigwam," all amidst border and land disputes, outlaws, and the discovery of oil.
Originally published in 1929, and twice made into a motion picture, "Cimarron" brings history alive, capturing the settling of the American West in vivid detail.
With a new foreword by Julie Gilbert.
Vintage Movie Classics spotlights classic films that have stood the test of time, now rediscovered through the publication of the novels on which they were based.
