Though nicely shot in CinemaScope, this Western is not one of director Otto Preminger's or stars Robert Mitchum's and Marilyn Monroe's strong films.

It's an awfully creaky story but the superb performances and Preminger's amazing use of widescreen make it a must-see.

Director Otto Preminger's only western is a simple, frequently charming, and beautifully photographed film blessed with fine performances and great teamwork from Robert Mitchum and Marilyn Monroe.

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.

Despite some pretty locations and occasional tension, there's little going on.

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.

Director Otto Preminger has thrown all the grandeur and menace of these features upon the eye-filling CinemaScope screen.

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.
