Not so long ago you could see Wild River pretty regularly, uncut and commercial-free, on American Movie Classics. Now it shows up occasionally on Fox Movie Channel -- this past weekend, I believe. Given the talent involved, it's hard to account for this film's absence. Keep up the good work, Jeremy.
Great film.I think it's still out on R2 DVD. Beautiful transfer. Love this one.I first saw it on during the AMC days.
Another deserving pick.Here's a few more:http://microbrewreviews.blogspot.com/2009/02/movie-poster-spotlight-mia-on-region-1.html
Thanks Samuel,Yea the old AMC is where I first caught it. These captures from from an FMC broadcast. I really love the film...Clift is amazing and all of Kazan's work should be available. Thanks Andrew, That's good to hear about the Region 2 disc. They really need to get this out here. I don't think it's ever had a home video release in the states, but I might be mistaken. Thanks Beerman...I just added the link. Great stuff, I love The Outer-Space Connection.
Jeremy,I was in a doctorate program last year with Clift's nephew. His father was Monty's older brother. I did get to talk to him a bit about Monty which was cool. Sent him a link to your previous article about WILD RIVER, but I didn't hear back from him about it. I'm sure he gets a little tired of being asked about Monty all the time. :-)
I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.Joannahhttp://transcendmemory.net
