Bend of the River 1952 James Stewart Rock Hudson Action
Stars: James Stewart, Rock Hudson, Arthur Kennedy
Bend of the River Story Line. Two men with questionable pasts, Glyn McLyntock and his friend Cole, lead a wagon-train load of homesteaders from Missouri to the Oregon territory. They establish a settlement outside of Portland and as winter nears, it is necessary for McLyntock and Cole to rescue and deliver food and supplies being held in Portland by corrupt officials. On the trip back to the settlement, up river and over a mountain, Cole engineers a mutiny to divert the supplies to a gold mining camp for a handsome profit.
There is much to enjoy in Bend of the River. The cinematography, filmed in the Columbia River Gorge and around Mt. Hood in Oregon, is wonderful. We also get a glimpse of Celilo Falls, once a sacred fishing site for native Americans in the area, It is now buried beneath the waters backed up behind the Dalles Dam. The music score blends in nicely with the action and there is plenty of that.
