With the end of the South African apartheid government and the events leading to that end of the past 50 years or so, Untamed was consigned to the 20th Century Fox vaults and has rarely been seen for a generation. Not that it was anything all that great to begin with.<br/><br/>Taken on its own terms and divorced from racial politics, Untamed is a sprawling Edna Ferber like saga of the founding of the Orange Free State and the journey of that group of Dutch settlers called Voortrekkers that made it happen. Tyrone Power is the leader of this group who has dreams of an empire. Dreams so big that Susan Hayward and their romance come in a definite second.<br/><br/>Power meets Hayward in Ireland where he&#39;s come to buy horses and the sparks fly at first sight. But he returns to South Africa and Susan marries good old reliable John Justin.<br/><br/>Later after the potato famine hits Ireland, the great Irish diaspora occurs and the Irish scatter throughout the globe. John and Susan go to South Africa and Sue not only meets Power again, but she also comes under the lustful eye of Richard Egan. Justin is killed, Sue wants Ty, Richard wants Sue, but Sue can&#39;t see him for beans.<br/><br/>I get the impression that there is a lot more to the original novel than what is shown here, but the story is poorly adapted. Using the comparison to Ferber, Richard Egan plays the Jett Rink part here. It&#39;s as though Jett Rink was crushing out on Scarlett O&#39;Hara. Maybe they should have gotten Edna Ferber herself to adapt this work by another author, Helga Moray.<br/><br/>The action sequences are done well however. The Zulu attack on the laager is as well staged as in any John Ford western and the final battle between Power&#39;s commandos and Egan&#39;s outlaws is also exciting.<br/><br/>By the way the word laager is the South African term they gave for the circle of wagons that the voortrekkers made when camping for the night. We&#39;ve seen many a western where they circled the wagons, but in South Africa they had a name for it. Voortrekker is the name of the Dutch pioneers who made the journey.<br/><br/>If you are a fan of the two leads as I am, make every effort to catch Untamed in the infrequent times it is shown.

Farmers throughout Europe, unsuccessful with their returns, journey to South Africa to take advantage of the free and fertile land, but must pass through hostile Zulu territory first. The wagon train sequence will be familiar to any western fan: it&#39;s the Settlers versus the Indians all over again, with the Zulu tribe on the attack and out for blood (we don&#39;t even know why they are so hungry for war). Susan Hayward plays a farmer&#39;s wife from Ireland who ends up widowed and caught between two men who desire her, Tyrone Power&#39;s leader of the Boer Fighter Commandos and Richard Egan&#39;s hot-blooded homesteader. Four screenwriters adapted Helga Moray&#39;s novel, but none were able to lift this one out its vat of musty clichés. The picture does look good in widescreen and vivid color, yet the characters are neither likable, sympathetic, nor interesting. ** from ****

Some rugged pioneer adventurers, headed by TYRONE POWER, SUSAN HAYWARD, JOHN JUSTIN and RICHARD EGAN, end up in South Africa fighting Zulus after fleeing Ireland because of the potato famine. This is one of those big sprawling Technicolor epics designed to lure patrons away from their TV sets in the mid &#39;50s to watch spectacular action unfold against handsome landscapes.<br/><br/>Susan Hayward is the feisty Irish heroine who marries John Justin but has her eyes set on following her true love--Tyrone Power--to South Africa. When hubby Justin is killed in a Zulu attack, she sets her mind on winning Tyrone&#39;s hand in marriage. She has to cope with Richard Egan, who is also lusting after her. There&#39;s a very realistically staged fight with a bull whip between Power and Egan--and you know who wins. But the script has her mistreating both men, enough so to make you wonder what makes her tick. It&#39;s an oddly defined role.<br/><br/>The story is a sprawling one and Henry King has directed some of it with his usual skill. The supporting cast includes HOPE EMERSON and AGNES MOOREHEAD, so obviously the studio treated this one as a big epic adventure story that would look handsomely rugged on the big screen.<br/><br/>Hayward faces all her hardships in Scarlett O&#39;Hara manner. &quot;Then we&#39;ll plough and seed. And then we&#39;ll come back,&quot; she says at one point to Agnes Moorehead after the latest catastrophe. Tyrone Power spends much of his time off camera but you know he&#39;s going to be the hero who returns to help her begin a new life. She becomes a wealthy woman after bartering with a native for a hefty diamond, and meets Power again years later at the Governor&#39;s Ball. But she and Power have another stormy disagreement and the story goes on and on.<br/><br/>It&#39;s basically an unrewarding mixture of adventure and romance with poor character motivations and a muddled script that lacks a strong focus. Hayward does some extravagant overacting as the ill-tempered heroine, Egan has the strongest male role and Power is totally wasted.
