Jeff S Most light-hearted film good for some laughs. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Audience Member Eleanor Parker was funny as heck in this one. Yes you will like it. I highly recommend it, James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, July 7, 2023. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/07/23 Full Review ashley h Many Rivers to Cross is a boring film. It is about a 18th century trapper who finds himself entrapped into marriage by Mary Stuart Cherne. Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker give terrible performance. The screenplay is badly written. Roy Rowland did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 'The higher up the berry tree, the sweeter grow the berries, the more you hug and kiss a girl, the more they want to marry... Peaches in the summertime, apples in the fall Till I find the gal I want, a' gonna have none at all'... Very Witty Frontier Comedy--Played absolutely over the top, to the hilt, right down to the final scene. Eleanor Parker has never been better and this early battle of the sexes, makes the on screen chemistry between she and the reluctant Robert Taylor, so much more fun... Gumptious Little Feist!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A good B western Comedy movie . Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member a western that shares its title with a gospel song Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
