Editorial Reviews

Anthony Quinn and Debra Paget are stunning – and Ray Milland is at his most dastardly – in this fiery love triangle that boasts intense action and rugged adventure in the Southwest.

Deep in the lonely New Mexico desert, Ben Cameron (Anthony Quinn) and his wife Meg (Debra Paget) struggle to build their small ranch. But the arrival of the charming but deadly trickster Nardo Denning (Ray Milland) could tear apart more than their homkestead. With a gun in his hand and a secret about Meg’s past in his heart, Denning forces Ben to guide him safely to Mexico with his stolen fortune. As they navigate the dangerous terrain, each man struggles to gain the upper hand for survival – and for Meg – in this tense and gripping Western.

The best way to decribe "The River's Edge" is that it is a hybrid of noir and pulp fiction reminiscent of the work of Jim Thompson. It also works as a smashing adventure story. The two leads here are superb. Ray Milland is menacing as the heavy but does so with great subtlety. Anthony Quinn is intriguing as the rancher and there are many shades to his character. His Ben Cameron is a good man but he is no wilting flower in the face of evil as represented by Milland's Nardo Denning. The confrontations between these two are tense and keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. Though not fatal to the film, Debra Paget as Quinn's wife and Milland's former squeeze is the weak link in the triangle. You don't believe for one minute that Paget was ever a gangster's moll who served time in the pen. I recommend this film ultimately as an opportunity to see two top actors at the top of their game.

This wonderful and underrated film is one of Dwan's finest. Allan Dwan's career, which started in the silent era, is amongst the most exciting and prolific of Hollywood's classic era. The River's edge starts like a melodrama: ex crook Ray Milland looks for his former girlfriend (Debra Paget) and eventually finds her, remarried to a simple and honest man (Anthony Quinn at his very best). But the plot then shifts into a manhunt across the mountains, with murder and betrayal. Dwan has a unique sense of time and space, not unlike Anthony Mann's, and his style combines the flamboyence of Sirk with the self contained assurance of John Ford. As a mixture of 50's noir and contemporary western, River's edge, beautifully photographed in technicolor and cinemascope is one of the great "lost films". It's ruthless but filled with extraordinary humanity. The film builds up to a surprising finale with a startling shot alongside "the river's edge". Its a film about greed, lust and love, wonderfully written and acted. A must see.

Format: DVD
Put together on a very limited budget by independant producer Benedict Bogeaus, 1957's THE RIVER'S EDGE is a very entertaining film which plays like a cross-breed noir adventure. It's stars are Ray Milland, Debra Paget and Anthony Quinn.

When San Francisco con-man and all-round bad guy Nardo Denning (Ray Milland) tracks down his former girlfriend Meg (Debra Paget), now living on a small farm with husband Ben Cameron (Anthony Quinn); he pays Ben to guide him over the border into Mexico. Nardo's sole cargo is a suitcase stuffed with hot cash - and the offer is too good for Ben to refuse. Their farm isn't working out, and Meg's about to walk away for good.

As the troubled trio set off on foot for Mexico, all manner of obstacles will stand in their way - most of which stem from the psychological torment the two men harbour over Meg...

THE RIVER'S EDGE is a rare colour noir; and the colour works to spectacular effect in illustrating the inner dilemmas of the characters. Debra Paget, looking very foxy indeed with her close-cropped hair (dyed in a vivid red that pops off the screen) delivers a good performance as Meg, though it's been reported that director Allan Dwan felt dissatisfied with her portrayal. Fans of Paget will know that this was one of her first truly "contemporary" film roles (after years of working in period costumes in things like "Les Miserables" and "Prince Valiant"). I imagine she enjoyed the chance to finally prove herself with a modern heroine.

The two men are likewise superb, but you can't really miss when you have Anthony Quinn and Ray Milland on the screen. Quinn was riding high on a series of superb film performances, including Fellini's "La Strada".

This is a good, old fashioned movie with good acting and something you probably will never find on the TV classics. Ray Milland is very good as is Anthony Quinn and Debra Paget. You will enjoy this one.

GREAT ACTION STORY. I HAD SEEN THIS MOVIE MANY YEARS AGO AND AM AMAZED THAT IT HAS LOST NONE OF ITS GREAT QUALITIES. GOOD STORY AND ACTING TO MATCH. YOU CAN'T BEAT MILLAND, QUINN AND PAGET. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR ACTION.

A fun, colorful movie that makes the most of the talents of Ray Milland and Anthony Quinn. This story is somewhat unique as it features elements of both the western and suspense genres. A great escape for a couple of hours.

Milland and Quinn are very good in this actioner trying to cross the border with a suitcase of money and girlfriend
