Risible script based on a doorstop novel by Henry Morton Robinson, but handled by Preminger with tremendous panache; worth seeing just for the incredible skill and flair with which he stages the action and moves the camera.
River of No Return is a GREAT movie! I ordered the Blu-ray, not sure 'how' it would look being such an old movie but it was awesome! The scenery in the movie just added to the movie itself!\nI would suggest it to anyone who loves Robert Mitchum or westerns, or rivers or indian fights. It did not have anything unappropriate (especially compared to todays movies!) for children.
As a fan of the late, great Marilyn, I would encourage any others to purchase this collection. It is a delight to finally have these movies as part of my DVD collection, and the price and convenience of pick up (site to store) couldn't be better. Of special note, outside of the group of movies we all know and love--restored, no less--I must mention the last DVD in the group, "The Final Days." I enjoyed this documentary, as it was very informative and full of great clips and photos of MM just before her death. The best part, however, as someone who's always heard about all the footage they shot for "Something's Got to Give" and has been dying to see it. . .you are treated to a reconstruction of the film. They take existing footage and, using scripts and notes from the production, put together what they can so that we might see what could have been. . .and the last of our dear Marilyn Monroe.
