By 1948 Errol Flynn's career was practically over, his health was fading fast, and he was known to have a bad reputation because of his drinking and womanizing. Such a shame for a guy who was untouchable in the 1930's, and had everything he wanted. But Errol Flynn had a reckless lifestyle off the camera and it ruined his own career by doing so. I guess Warner Bros. was trying everything to re-energize his career again, so Jack Warner had the great idea to team Errol Flynn, and Roaul Walsh together again, in a western with Ann Sheridan as his costar was a way to bring back his career. Nothing doing so, this film flopped, and Errol Flynn's career remained the same. Silver River is not the kind of film, that would bring your career back up or anybody else's. It's the kind of film you would want to avoid if you can. It's the least bit of entertaining, and the plot is as careless as it's script. Avoid this film at all costs. Errol Flynn aged considerably from his first western he ever made Dodge City to this one ten years later. He was a frighting 39 years old in this film, and looks more like he's around fifty. His age would just get worst and worst in the next ten years, and his films would become poorer and poorer. * out of ****.
