"Bend of the River" welcomes the fine blend of a passionate action with
intense characterization that had become Mann's masterful specialty...
Stewart (in his second feature with Mann after "Winchester '73") is
seen as a reluctant hero, stumbled, brutalized and confused, chasing a
personal mission with severe determination, and giving life to the
complex moral and psychological forces that drive Mann's heroes...
Vivid as a laconic quiet man driven by betrayal to violent rage,
Stewart is a former raider on the Missouri-Kansas border, who guides a
wagon train of settlers to Oregon... There he gets double-crossed by
associates who try to turn aside necessary food and supplies to
Ingenious and malicious, Arthur Kennedy (very much in his element), is
Stewart's former companion-in-crime whom Stewart saves from hanging,
and helps him fight the Indians on the way to Oregon...
Adroit, insincere, and dishonest, Kennedy turns on Stewart stealing the
settler's supplies for a handsome profit but is later dispatched by an
irritated and enraged Stewart...
Kennedy has been preferred in Westerns as the more insidious kind of
villain: friendly, smiling, charming and smooth-talking on the surface,
weak and corrupt underneath... His specialty is the courteous type who

penitence in all the macho interplay...
Rock Hudson is cast as a soft gambling man from San Francisco, adept at
cards as well as women, defender of a fair deal, ready to fight beside
Filmed against a breathtaking Technicolor panorama, with nice music
that highlights the action, "Bend of the River" is a good standard
Western with pace and period feeling, rolling along to its predictable
happy ending, discarding any unwanted characters...
