Watch John Wayne steal the film
I was 10 years old when this film was made and wish somebody had taken me to see it as a boy. This is definitely no chick flick. It's an old-style Western made for the boy in every guy and well worth watching despite a shoot-em-up ending which is exceedingly far-fetched. There are a lot of good reasons for liking this movie. It's optimism and adventure, the scenery, the compelling storyline.....but undeniably it is the presence of John Wayne that absolutely makes the movie and keeps you interested. John Wayne being John Wayne in all his American glory and making the Hollywood actors of today seem like soulless, plastic waifs.
the cowboys. duke spoke from the heart
was watching the president adress the nation re. the boston bombing, and commented to my wife,there is such a lack of conviction in his voice, so monotone and flat. what we need is a voice that inspires people. john wayne didnt have to yell or scream, he just looked right at the screen and you KNOW he meant business. the cowboys is a great example. i wont hire you. i hate a lier. or my personal favorite line. you look like the vermin ridden s.o.b. that you are. it makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. i have nothing against the president, im sure he is a sincere man , i say show it. stop reading the monitors, tele prompters etc. america, especially these days needs to hear that voice like john waynes or if if your not a fan of his. theres f.d.r. or teddy roosevelt.speak softly and carry a big stick. killing children at a marathon run! its time to look the devils in the eye, and send them to hell where they belong.
Absolutely the most underrated John Wayne film.

This is absolutely my favorite of all the John Wayne westerns. I saw it first as a young boy and it fostered dreams of the old west. It clearly puts to screen many of the boyhood fantacies of kids being cowboys and fighting the badguys. It is has comedy, drama and adventure all rolled up into one. I only wish they would show it more often. My son is 8 and even though the content is a little violent for that age the overriding theme is one of perseverance and triumph so I can't wait to watch it with him. I only wish they made more movies like this these days. I strongly recommend this for anyone age 9 or above. It is truly an experience of "adventure" from beginning to end.
