Brigham Young is a movie from the 1940s and was directed by Harry Hathaway. The movie is based on the true life story of the members of the Mormon faith as they traveled westward. The story focuses on two faithful followers of the Mormon religion, Jonathan Kent (Tyrone Power) and Zina Webb ( Linda Darnell). The two of them agree to leave their Illinois home and follow their leader, Joseph Smith (Vincent Price), westward. After Smith was killed, Brigham Young (Dean Jagger) was chosen to lead the Mormon Church. He takes his followers on the long and difficult journey to the region that is known today as Salt Lake City, Utah. The story details the struggles and trials the group dealt with on their journey including a cold and harsh winter, confrontations with hostile people and the dangers of traveling through the rough mountains. This story is a testament to the faith and love of the Mormon people.
