Any man, I suppose, who believes as I do that the human race is a horrible mistake.

Canyon Passage is directed by Jacques Tourneur and is adapted by Ernest Pascal from the novel written by Ernest Haycox. It stars Dana Andrews, Brian Donlevy, Ward Bond, Susan Hayward, Lloyd Bridges & Patricia Roc, with Hoagy Carmichael also supporting and offering up ditties such as the Oscar Nominated "Ole Buttermilk Sky". Music is by Frank Skinner and cinematography by Edward Cronjager.

More famed for his moody black & white pieces, Canyon Passage finds Tourneur operating in glorious Technicolor on Western landscapes. The result of which is as gorgeous as it is thematically sizzling. The story follows Andrews' Logan Stuart, a former scout turned store & freight owner who has landed in Jacksonsville, Oregon. Also residing here is the girl he is courting, Caroline Marsh {Roc} and his friend George Camrose {Donlevy} who plans to marry Lucy Overmire {Hayward}. However, there are problems afoot as George has a serious gambling problem, one that will send this tiny town into turmoil. Affairs of the heart also come under pressure, and to cap it all off, the Indians are on the warpath after the brutish Honey Bragg {Bond} kills an innocent Indian girl.

The first thing that is so striking about Canyon Passage is the town of Jacksonville itself, this is a vastly different Western town to the ones we are used to seeing. Built in a sloping canyon that helps to pump up the off kilter feeling that breathes within the picture, it's also green, very green, but in a most visually refreshing way.

Format: DVD
'Canyon Passage', is a film, I have always fondly remembered, from many years' ago.
Usually, when a favourite film, is, viewed again, years' later, a disappointment sets in, as, the film sometimes, has fallen short of the mark and has dated.
This cannot be said of this excellent film.
Filmed in vibrant colour and boasting the presence of the absolutely ravishing Susan Hayward, it is a must see!
She is ably supported, by a sterling cast, lead by Dana Andrews, Brian Donlevy, Andy Devine, Lloyd Bridges, Ward Bond and English beauty, Patricia Roc.
This also just happened to be, Director, Jacques Tourneur's first Western. He had previously been the much acclaimed Director of two fine film noirs', notably 'Cat People' and 'Out of the Past' also known as 'Build my Gallows High'.
M/s Hayward, herself, several years' later, would win the best actress Oscar for 'I Want to Live', produced by Walter Wanger, who is also the Producer of 'Canyon Passage'.
Also featured in the cast, is the great Hoagy Carmichael, as a wandering minstrel, who just happens to warble, extremely, catchy songs. It is this superb singer/ composer, who sings 'Ole Buttermilk Sky', during the closing moments of the film.
All in all, a lovely movie, to watch time and time again.
The wonderful, last lingering shot of Susan Hayward and Dana Andrews riding into the future, is an uplifting revelation in itself alone.
Highly recommended!

this great western film classic finaly on DVD ..the cover says Black and white but it is not , it is in magnificent vivid colour , great location shots stunning panaramas ,
top cast , top director , great action, great plot lines roll along .
one of the great singer/ songwritters of the 20th century hoagy carmichle is featured too in a suporting roll singing at various junctions in the story including his smash hit title song "old buttermilk sky " that is still being covered today almost 60 years after !.
great film master print.
the only let down/ drawback not one extra like a trailer, interview , etc etc ...
