1001 Movies You Must See Before You Dieby Steven Jay Schneider
First published in 2003
The 1954 film version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is discussed here as being one of the "must see before you die" films, but the description then immediately goes on to berate the movie as a "profoundly sexist film about patriarchal rape fantasies."
The period from 1983 to 1993 is remarkably bereft of examples from River's career. Indeed, while there seems to be plenty of space in this thickly bound book for movies such as 1985's The Breakfast Club and the 1986 remake of The Fly, only a couple of River's movies are present.
The two-paragraph entry for Stand By Me is plain and unillustrated, whereas the only other film to be included in this book that River appeared in is presented much more vividly.
