River of No Return

StarringMarilyn MonroeRobert Mitchum

Year: 1954

Directed byOtto PremingerJean Negulesco

Plot: Robbed of their single rifle and horse by a drifter, Robert Mitchum, a strong silent man with a dark past, his kid and Marilyn, a saloon singer and the drifter’s wife, take a raft down the treacherous River of No Return.

Pros: Marilyn Monroe in wet, tight-fitting clothes.

Cons: It shows its vintage. The token hostile Indians are there to howl, ride in circles and get shot. Marilyn wants nothing else than a little house with a white picket fence, where she can be raped by Robert Mitchum (the poster leaves little to imagination).
