I liked this DVD. If you like the old fashioned western movies from the 1940's you will enjoy this movie. It is slow moving. The acting is high quality. The story is strong.

Really enjoyable Western- James Stewart actually made quite a few Westerns ( many of them worth watching if you're a fan of the genre ), and a number of them with noted director Anthony Mann.

Jimmy Stewart in "Bend of the River" goes to town to help some settlers go west. He is taking their money and ordering what he needs. What follows is an amazing story, that probably did occur to many a settler. Jimmy Stewart has no other choice in "Bend in the River" but to get revenge. He plays it tough with the help of Arthur Kennedy, Harry Morgan and Rock Hudson. The Director is Anthony Mann and he would use all of the above actors in other westerns he would make later. Once you have a winning formula, why break it up? This is one of Jimmy Stewarts best westerns

A man helping a group of settlers head west befriends a cattle theif about to be lynched. The problems get worse as they encounter hostile indian tribes and hostile gold miners. The story moves well and there is a surprising amount of action and comedy woven in. No shortage of gun fights and killing. i.e. a good old fashioned western so be warned.
