      Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine A pleasant river atmosphere piece with Walter Brennan, the splendid character actor who did the Swede in Come and Get It. Mounting includes some unusually subtle touches. Apr 22, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D Better than it has any right to be thanks to Stanwyck. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Barbara's always worth watching but this is an unexceptional drama with Joel's character pretty much a lunkhead and her devotion to him rather hard to fathom. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
