Tall in the Saddle (1944)
John Wayne stars in this western as Rocklin, a ranch hand who goes to Santa Inez for work and gets involved in the lives of those who run the KC Ranch--and those who would like to run it.

Critic Reviews for Tall in the Saddle
RKO's Western is simple but entertaining and it's fun to see the Duke, who enjoys good chemistry with the tough and sexy Ella Raines just before he became a box-office star.
Audience Reviews for Tall in the Saddle
Standard oater with nothing to distinguish it from the dozens of other run of the mill westerns that Wayne made throughout his career.More
Just a really likable movie with great characters and a unique mystery element that westerns don't always have. John Wayne presents such a great character, being a lot more of a traditional nice guy than a tough talking bad boy. For not being a huge movie, it's shot extremely well and it's not really dated. No corny characters or goofy costumes, it's all pretty perfect. I love the romance between John Wayne and Ella Raines, it has chemistry to say the least.More
