River of No Return (Preminger, 1954): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.10pm


This typically excellent Otto Preminger film screens as part of the Marilyn Monroe season at BFI Southbank. The movie also screens on 15 June. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Marilyn Monroe and Robert Mitchum search for her missing husband in this excellent 1954 western by Otto Preminger, one of the first films to discover the potential of CinemaScope and a fine example of Preminger's rational approach to the mysteries of personal morality.
Dave Kehr

Here (and above) is the trailer.
