The westerns Errol Flynn made at "Warner Bros" were never quite his best. A few of them - "Dodge City," "Virginia City" and "Rocky Mountain" contain many entertaining scenes and are his most watchable. "Silver River" had potential and has a very good opening scene. Sadly from there on in, it is a disappointment. The plot is sluggish and confusing. The rambling narrative doesn't help matters. Raoul Walsh has directed far better films than "Silver River," including classics with Errol Flynn. Ann Sheridan makes for a good leading lady and she compliments Flynn well. The latter is playing a character who is less like his usual charming and confident self. He displays more of a hard edge and isn't very affable toward others in the film. I was quite relieved when the film drew its conclusion.
