"Another great collaboration between Mann and Stewart!"
4 stars"

“When an apple's rotten, there's nothing you can do except throw it away or it will spoil the whole barrel.”

Emerson Cole and Glyn McLyntock. Watching these two together, you could be forgiven for taking Bend of the River as a buddy film. But there's more going on here than first meets the eye. Equally intelligent, equally cunning and equally deadly, these two men are two different sides of the same coin – often back to back in combat, but each capable of turning on the other in a heartbeat. Is there a difference between men and apples? Can a man change his ways? Only the film's ending can answer that, but it sure is a whole lotta fun finding out. For fans of the slightly grittier westerns, where the men were as just as harsh as the landscapes they inhabited. Highly recommended.

(Also check out ‘The Man From Laramie’ and ‘Winchester 73’ for more great collaborations between Stewart and Mann)


Man-with-a-past James Stewart guides a band of pioneers from Missouri over the Oregon Trail to a new life in the Columbia River Basin in this western adventure directed by Anthony Mann. When the settlers are cheated out of their supplies and cattle, Stewart crosses rivers, climbs mountains and out-guns greedy hijackers to ensure their survival through the first winter. Along the way, he is double-crossed by ally Arthur Kennedy and assisted by handsome San Francisco gambler Rock Hudson and beautiful farmer's daughter Julia Adams.
