Marilyn Monroe never looked more radiant (and wind-tossed) than in this Western potboiler in which Robert Mitchum rescues her and husband (Rory Calhoun) from an out-of-control river raft. To show his appreciation, Calhoun steals Mitchum's horse, abandoning them both to hostile Indians. Monroe's good looks are offset nicely by Mitchum's flinty machismo. River of No Return was partly filmed on location in the Pacific Northwest.
