Lavishly mounted Western by Jacques Tourneur, better known for his noir films

... a remarkably dense drama where the tensions between individual enterprise and communal good are often strained and the line between hero and villain... gray.

Jacques Tourneur at work in color on Western landscapes is something to behold

Full Review… | September 5, 2009

One of those great Westerns, equal to John Ford's top work, that has somehow been undeservedly ignored.

Audience Reviews for Canyon Passage

one of those terrific westerns where nothing is black and white. dana andrews stands by his friend brian donlevy, who may be a thief and maybe a murderer, and is engaged to the woman they both love. a fight with a local outlaw and an indian attack later, and everything shakes out differently. hoagy carmichael sings and all's right with the world. well worth it for western fans
