Good Entertainment With Stop Stars: A Must Have
"Many Rivers To Cross," 1955Beverly Anne 12/08/2016Unfortunately, comedies made today, for the most part, don't even provoke this film commentator to a half a grin. You almost expect some "canned laughter" to emit from the soundtrack, and I feel obligated for some reason to force a chuckle. Clearly, "Many Rivers to Cross" is not one of these modern day comedies. Two of Hollywood's most acclaimed dramatic stars turn to light comedy in this 1955 MGM frontier adventure, circa early pre-Revolutionary era. The utter surprise is that both actors proved themselves not only capable comedic actors, but their overall romantic appeal enhanced itself on the screen in an unexpected way. Their timing was flawless and priceless as well.The stunningly handsome matinee idol going by the name of Robert Taylor matches wits with the most tomboy-like, man-crazy, gorgeous frontier woman that there ever was, Eleanor Parker. Well-written, witty and medium to fast-paced as well, you'll sit back and slap your knee in glee as the chemistry between both stars mesmerizes and ignites. Eleanor Parker is not only an intense dramatic actress when the part calls for it, but she's an extremely physical comedy actress as well with impeccable timing that's so vital in making a comedy film. She swims better than Robert Taylor, fights, shoots and snaps a bull whip with precision, rolls in the dirt, gets dunked in a horse trough and so much more--all for the sake of trapping the man that she loves. She somehow manages to pull it off with a touch of class that's unimaginable for a frontier woman. Bravo Parker! You should have gotten another Oscar nomination in addition to "Interrupted Melody" that same year.
Rivers of Laughter
- Bob Hendrick
When you look at what is passing for comedy on the screen today, Hollywood should take a hard backward glance at films like this one. Eleanor Parker has to be the most underrated actress of all time; and what a beauty! Even frontier clothes can't hide that incredible face. Her flair for comedy shines in this movie. Her and Robert Taylor light up the screen (They made three films together I believe). Please release this on DVD!

Very Funny Frontier Farce
- muriel schwenck
This film is just plain fun to watch. It's fun for adults and children. Just don't make them like this amymore. I remember the first time I saw it I laughed so hard my face hurt.

Love This Movie
This movie is just great family fun. I can still sing the title song after 40 years. I used to watch the TV guide every week to see if it would be on so I could tape it - even had friends and family watching for me in other cities!! My tape is disintegrating - so PLEASE bring this out on DVD!
MANY RIVERS TO CROSS
Two good stars with Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker in a good movie and should be released on DVD.
A HOOt, from start to finish!
- Sheila B
This film a a wild & wacky frontier farce, enjoyable for the whole family.Eleanor Parker shows great comedic flair as "Stepping Woman". Wow, she just takes your breath away. I have a weird favorite line: "I might not look so bad in a tepee." She is a gumptious little feist indeed! This one is crying out to be released on DVD format.
Lesser Movies on DVD Why Not This Classic
I have seen this movie twice and I have looked for it for ages. This is such a great movie, funny, all the way through.The kind of movie you can just sit and enjoy over and over. Of all the movies that are on DVD I just wish you would release this one. It truely is enjoyable from the word go. Bushrod and Stepping Woman just have to be on the DVD list.
A Funny, Funny Movie
Robert Taylor played this with tongue in cheek I am sure. A fun movie to watch and it has good legs to last for many years if it would be released on DVD.
It's been 52 years
- Jerry Powell
This movie came to the Air-Sho Drive In in Mobile Alabama in 1955. I begged and pleaded with my parents to take me to see it. After awhile they finally relented. I loved this movie and it has been 52 years since I have seen it. A year or two back I requested it on your website. Yesterday at 2:00 P.M. I looked in the paper and saw where it came on at 11:00 A.M. After 52 years I missed it by a couple of hours. Please Please re-run this movie. Hopefully in the evening where I'll get to see it. It must be a good one to have stuck with me this long!
Many Rivers to Cross
- Diane McNaughton
Please bring it to dvd it is a great move
Ditto for DVD on Many Rivers To Cross
- Pat Lehman
It's hard to believe that this movie has never been released on VHS or DVD. The story of a trapper gettin' trapped is warm, funny and just plain good. Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker were an excellent team. I, too, loved the way Eleanor Parker said "Bushrod", (and what a name - who thunk it up). My favorite line in the movie though is when Eleanor Parker says, "Bushrod, I unwed ye." It's a hoot. This is the type of film that the whole family can sit around and enjoy together. Hurry up and get it out on DVD.

Love this movie - hate that it is rarely shown on TV. And hate even worse that it is not on DVD!Vicki
THIS MOVIE IS A MUST SEE!!!!
I can't understand why this movie"Many Rivers To Cross" has not been released on VHS or DVD. It is a charming movie, one the whole family can enjoy. Robert Taylor makes a great Bushrod Gentry, Eleanor Parker is a charming Mary Stuart the cast is fantastic. It is a Movie that can be seen over again & you will enjoy every time you see it. I don't know why TMC hasn't shown this movie, I always check your schedule. "SHAME ON YOU". This movie is on my top favorites including "Margie"with Jeanne Crain" they are much better & more entertaining than today's movies. Please put this movie on DVD or VHS so the people can see what they are missing. Thank You Yvonne James
