Critic Reviews for Canyon Passage
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
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
A great western that can stand along any John Ford western from the same period. It is crisply directed by the underrated Jacques Tourneur and features beautiful color cinematography. Dana Andrews give a great performance as Logan Stuart a entrepreneur in 1856-Oregon. The film costars Brian Donlevy and Susan Hayward and features one of the best barroom brawls in cinema between Andrews and Ward Bond.
