    John Wayne had a stock company of veteran players who were cast inhis films. This great John Wayne western is no exception.Andrew McLaglen delivers a fine western. Duke Wayne is great and a standout is the fine Glenn Corbett who should have been a bigger star. The INdustry was changing to the anti-hero and Corbett had few roles after this fine showcase as Pat Garrett.This was a Batjac production thru WB and it is great to see scenes shot on the legendary Western street at Warners.RIP Duke Wayne, Glenn Corbett, Christopher George

    Underated, near epic vehicle for John Wayne made after his Academy Award win for TRUE GRIT. John Simpson Chisum (Wayne) is a well respected rancher in New Mexico Territory circa 1870. Along with Henry Tunstall (Patric Knowles) they both control a large segment of Lincoln Co. Trouble starts with disreputable business tycoon Lawrence Murphy (Forrest Tucker) starts buying up everything in sight, including the local sheriff. Enter William Bonney AKA Billy the Kid who is more or less adopted by Tunstall in hopes that William will reform. When Tunstall is murdered by Murphy's deputies, William takes matters into his own hands killing anyone loyal to Murphy, yet eluding the law. Chisum is then authorized by a local judge to bring the two deputies who murdered Tunstall to justice, but they are killed by Billy the Kid. Things go from bad to worse when a crazed bounty hunter takes over as sheriff. In the meantime, Chisum befreinds the only man capable of capturing Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett. It is only a matter of time until Garrett gets involved, by now it is a full scale war with the climax being a wild fistfight between Chisum and Murphy.
