At the tender age of 23, Tyrone Power attained full-fledged leading man status with this role. Since most of today's actors and actresses around that age are still playing teen roles, this is almost something incomprehensible (one has only to compare the likes of Rita Hayworth, Loretta Young, Gary Cooper all of whom eased into adult leading roles barely into their twenties). One critic likened it to the Depression and the quick maturity beyond one's years that it afforded an individual (certainly Power, himself, had had his share of difficulties up to that point). Whatever the reasons, Tyrone Power arrived as a complete leading man at this early stage of his career and retained that position for the next quarter century.
