We've seen this story before but with Jimmy Stewart in the lead
4 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It only took me about 30 minutes into the plot of this original 2-part TV episode before it all seemed deja vu. Boone gets supplies back from a crooked trader who has resold them and escorts them to the settlers who originally paid for them. He takes on some undesirables to help him out but they turn on him half way to his settlement because they are offered a bigger money reward from someone else who needs the supplies equally as bad. Yes, this is the plot of BEND OF THE RIVER, the 1952 Anthony Mann directed Jimmy Stewart flick. And just like the Mann movie, Boone's somewhat shady, but likable buddy turns on him when the urge to rake in more money gets too strong. In the Jimmy Stewart movie, this part was played to perfection by Arthur Kennedy, a frequent Stewart costar. D.D. 'Bud' Beauchamp is credited with the story and screenplay for the Boone TV movie, however, that distinction should probably go to Borden Chase who wrote the screenplay for BEND OF THE RIVER. Let's face it, not much was changed from the 1952 original.
