Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
They drive the cattle from Oregon to Wyoming in Canyon River -- in other words, the wrong way. That, however, is about the only surprise in this pleasant, and pleasantly acted, Western melodrama from Allied Artists. Everything about the film is pleasant, including leading men (and onscreen rivals) George Montgomery and Peter Graves. Marcia Henderson makes a pleasant heroine, Alan Hale Jr. is pleasant as a reformed outlaw, and even villain Walter Sande is on the mild side. The color is by De Luxe (and is, needless to say, pleasant to look at) and the locations are on the grand scale -- all of which, sadly, are somewhat lost in the pan-and-scan versions.
