River of No Return is beautifully shot, contains gorgeous scenery, and offers up two of the greatest and grandest of all movie stars for our viewing pleasure. But, how to word this delicately?, the script needed a lot of work before it could be considered anything other than slight.

“River of No Return is beautifully shot, contains gorgeous scenery, and offers up two of the greatest and grandest of all movie stars for our viewing pleasure. But, how to word this delicately?, the script needed a lot of work before it could be considered anything other than slight.

Mitchum plays our tortured hero in need of the redemption that only a reunion with his son and love of a good woman can provide. He's stumbled back in to town from who knows where, and meets back up with his long lost son. When we first meet Monroe she's a saloon singer strumming on a guitar.

"13.5. 2010 Words cannot fully describe my disappointment with this film. What could've been a decent adventure film, is ruined by execrably racist and chauvinistic script and countless technical mistakes. The story is a typical survival story: Matt Calder is living with his young son, Mark, on a remote farm. One day they get in troubles with Kay, a former saloon hall girl, and her husband Harry Weston. Weston steals Matt's horse and rifle and starts riding toward his destination without Kay, w"
