Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Hedy Lamarr appears in Copper Canyon beautifully decked out in Technicolor period costumes but what she is doing here is anyone's guess. Yes, there is quite a bit of talk about her being hired by a crooked smelting baron to drive away the competition but exactly how she's is supposed to do so is never really made clear. But the lady is indeed stunning and if her falling head over heels in love with Ray Milland at virtually first glance sounds equally equivocal, well, that's just par for the course. Mr. Milland, meanwhile, is just as enigmatic as his co-star: Is he or isn't he a former Confederate colonel on the run? After 80 or so minutes of mostly exposition, however, nobody will much care. Watch for Nina Mae McKinney, the seductress of King Vidor's Hallelujah (1929), in a silent bit as Lamarr's maid.
