Rating: B -- The leisurely told cornball tale of frontier love makes for a pleasant and unassuming film. Full Review

Mood of the picture is pleasant but is so even that interest isn't too strong. Full Review

Rachel and the Stranger may not be history precisely, but as a cinematic footnote it certainly is far more palatable than most texts. Full Review

It's a real charmer, held together by Mitchum's electric presence as the laconic interloper with a gently roving eye and a winning way with his guitar and songs. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Stoic backwoodsman Big Davey Harvey (William Holden) "buys" and marries a bondswoman, Rachel (Loretta Young), to care for and educate his motherless son. Neither the father nor son find much to appreciate in Rachel until Jim Fairways (Robert Mitchum), a guitar-strumming hunter, shows a romantic interest in her. Violent jealousy erupts between the two men, settled only after a spectacular raid on the Harveys' homestead by unmerciful Shawnee Indians. But which man will win Rachel's heart?
