Critic Reviews for River of No Return
The striking beauties of the Canadian Rockies co-star with the blonde charms of Marilyn Monroe and the masculine muscles of Robert Mitchum in River of No Return.
Some decent performances, but with this story they didn't have much of a chance.
One of the first films to discover the potential of CinemaScope and a fine example of Preminger's rational approach to the mysteries of personal morality.
There really is no return.June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
Director Otto Preminger has thrown all the grandeur and menace of these features upon the eye-filling CinemaScope screen.March 25, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
It's fun watching Mitchum and Monroe heat things up in the Old West; Monroe is at her most luminous as a saloon singer with a heart of gold.March 10, 2003 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for River of No Return
Mar 13, 2013Oh Lord, here we have Marilyn Monroe wearing inappropriate clothing for the wilderness and needing to be taken down river by husky Robert Mitchum. A bit of hokum as a result.John B Super Reviewer
Jan 24, 2013Its not the greatest adventure Western ever made, or does even much of it make sense, but there's few that have as much charisma as Mitchum and Marilyn all wet on a raft in CinemaScope. First off, Marilyn gets to vamp a coupla tunes for the boys in the backroom, and then its out into the great wide Canadian open. Its fun.Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
Jul 02, 2010A western. A Marilyn Monroe flick. Of course I had to see this. And it was just as bad as I was expecting. Now I usually don't demerit a film for bad "special effects" but this was a little absurd. I mean, was I ever supposed to believe Marilyn was on that raft? I don't see how. Awful. And when the Native American comes on the raft only to rip Marilyn's shirt as she screams helplessly. OMFG. Let's get real here people.Jennifer D Super Reviewer
May 10, 2008I've seen some of it. Pretty dull.Morris N Super Reviewer
