The Fighting Kentuckian Reviews

The Fighting Kentuckian is a fairly disappointing affair. It's not the best of the western genre and certainly not the best of John Wayne. I like director George Waggner but more for his TV work, most notably Batman. It is historically inaccurate and never, ever convincing. The acting is hammy to say the least, the action never really works and the story lack fluidity. The only reason why it is worth watching is to see the bizarre but quite brilliant pairing of John Wayne and Oliver Hardy. Oliver Hardy steals the show, even though his screen time seems to have been greatly reduced and it's made fairly obvious who he is (and why he was cast) by the reactions to every scene he's in which are over the top and what you'd expect from a chat show host after a special guest performance.

This was actually a lot of fun to watch but rather odd as the heroes are the refugees from Napoleon's French Imperial court and the villains are a bunch of Alabaman river men trying to cheat the French out of thier land grants. PS the French win the land/range war with some help from John Wayne and Stan Laurel who is really good as Wayne's fighting sidekick. It's funny as the the way the actors say John Wayne's character's name with thier accents makes it sound like they are saying John Wayne instead of John Breen.

In Alabama in 1818, Kentucky militiaman John Breen falls in love with a French exile and discovers a plot to steal the land her fellow exiles plan to settle on.

A very enjoyable movie, especially pairing John Wayne with Oliver Hardy. That is the reason this is worth watching. Talk about an odd pairing for a buddy movie.

An early John Wayne movie in a coon-skin cap where he is the star and producer. What makes this a classic film is that his side-kick is Oliver Hardy of Laurel & Hardy duo is his co-star.

This movie has some of the worst reviews and comments on any John Wayne movie, but it is one of my favorites. i love Oliver Hardy as the side kick. And John Wayne is always good...

John Wayne plays a frontiersman, who partners up with Oliver Hardy! This seems strange at first, but they have a great rapport and act well together. Vera Ralston is the love interest, and while she's pretty, she's not great actress and is passable in the role. There's lots of fighting and heroic action in this movie, and it's a way to pass an enjoyable hour or two. John is at his most charismatic here.

The more I watch this movie the more I like it. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite classic movies. John Wayne is charming as usual in this film. [b][color=silver]A love story with some good humor, and action in it!
