      Richard Brody New Yorker Avoiding history and politics, Tourneur serves up, in a dreamlike Technicolor glow, a pastoral film noir. Nov 28, 2016 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A sturdy Western in which, for once, the story is more sprawling than the scenery. Rated: 3/4 Mar 29, 2020 Full Review Josephine O'Neill Daily Telegraph (Australia) Only a rambling script, which settles down to a jog-trot through magnificent Technicolor backgrounds of Oregon lake and timber, prevents it from being a film of this or any other week. Apr 9, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Lavishly mounted Western by Jacques Tourneur, better known for his noir films Rated: B Jul 30, 2011 Full Review Sean Axmaker Turner Classic Movies Online ... a remarkably dense drama where the tensions between individual enterprise and communal good are often strained and the line between hero and villain... gray. Aug 11, 2010 Full Review Fernando F. Croce CinePassion Jacques Tourneur at work in color on Western landscapes is something to behold Sep 5, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Wretched. You'd be better off watching paint dry. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Paixão Selvagem (1946) 4,0 ⭐️ #MovieReview Viajante e comerciante entre cidades do velho Oeste tenta ajudar amigo viciado em jogo enquanto é alvo de paixão de duas mulheres. Muito bom western em estilo clássico e estória bem desenvolvida! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Canyon Passage is a brawling and sprawling American Western. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review bill t A remarkably slow build up (the first half doesn't move much at all) into much of nothing, really. Just boredom. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Somewhere in Oregon, Dana Andrews is running a mule-train express service and white people are starting to settle down in the area. Relations with the local Native Americans are tense (and yes, the film has the usual racist subplot of a vicious attack on the settlement). Andrews is juggling his business responsibilities while also becoming romantically entangled with one if not two local women (including Susan Haywood who is betrothed to the local banker, a friend but a serious problem gambler - Brian Donlevy). He's also endlessly fighting with doltish heavy Ward Bond who causes trouble for everyone. But Andrews is restless and all these subplots resolve themselves with his departure from the town with Hoagy Carmichael in tow (he who had been singing throughout the film). Above average western from Jacques Tourneur.
