Audience Reviews for Up the River

  • Dec 13, 2017
    John Ford paints a picture of America like Norman Rockwell painted, uhhh, pictures: a hazy kind of reflection, a fantasy people wanted to believe was true (whatever evidence to the contrary). And so this prison is like a summer camp, prisoners simply regular guys who lacked the right chance, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's pure hokum, P.T.Barnum style hokum, sure, and delivered with a smile, but entertaining hokum, yeah? Yeah. Plus, Spencer Tracy as the cocksure, conman type, Mr.Fix-It, and Bogie (yeah, THAT Bogie) as The Kid. Not bad.
