Cold River Details


Based on a novel by William Judson, Cold River is a study of the New York Adirondack region and the citizens dwelling therein. Richard Jaeckel is the only "name" actor in the cast, unless you count Robert Earl Jones, father of the better-known James Earl Jones. The villains are those old reliable Evil Land Developers who wish to despoil the terrain. Cold River was a family-oriented "four waller", designed for city-by-city distribution for a quick turnover. In this respect, it succeeded; aesthetically, it's little more than a glorified home movie. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
