      Steve D Overacted (even from the good actors) and slow. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Audience Member They put you in jail for having money? Pierre Espirit Radisson believes the next great land to be concurred and colonized is around the Hudson Bay. He would like a peaceful resolution to colonizing the land and believes it can be done so through a truce between the white man and the Indians. He works with the French and the British to establish who is best suited for the land. "I have two fiancées but that doesn't stop me from making my money." Irving Pichel, director of Santa Fe, Martin Luther, The Pied Piper, Before Dawn, Earthbound, and The Bride Wore Boots, delivers Hudson's Bay. The storyline for this picture is interesting and delivered in a historically loose manner. The scenery and premise is fascinating and the acting is solid. The script is a bit cheesy and preachy. The cast includes Vincent Price, Paul Muni, John Sutton, and Gene Tierney. "New York is a British possession." I DVR'd this picture because it starred Vincent Price. Actually, Price had just a minor role but Paul Muni was excellent as the lead character. The film actually reminded me of another Price picture, Brigham Young. Overall, this is worth watching but is far from my favorite Price picture. "There are big people and little people everywhere." Grade: C+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member good but inaccurate historical drama Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
