Innocuous old-timey entertainment.

Your average James Stewart Western, but with some decent little things here and there. Despite his age, James does a surprising bit of brawling and wrangling. I would consider this a superior western than the likes of Night Passagey, but only just.

A rodeo man is hired (by two different agents) to deliver a rare Hereford bull. An almost passionless Stewart, and a "no surprises" performance by Maureen O'Hara turn what could have been an interesting outing into a stale affair.

I watch a movie to be entertained and that is what happens every time I see this motion picture. If you love movies and if you are a fan of Jimmy Stewart and Maureen O'Hara, you will love this one.

Not one of James Stewarts best films,Maureen O'Hara appears out of her comfort zone, or just lost in a rather run of the mill film about breeding cows and romance thrown in, enjoyable but far from a classic

A boring tail of a bull that was brought to the us from England. Skip it.

nconvincing studio sets and uninspired direction don't help in lifting this above other bloated, awkward studio productions of the period.

This was not one of James Stewarts best efforts not that it was really his fault.

Pretty good Western with Maureen O'Hara shining in a supporting role. The story is interesting, but the plot sometimes turns on a dime without much to hint at developments before they happen.

"the rare breed" is a very forgettable film in james stewart's western catalog. it has it's moments, particularly when stewart's character is being a tough guy.

It has some moments and a good cast. But it's not very interesting as you would expect from a film about cattle breeding.

It was nice movie, James Stewart and O'Hara were great in the movie.

Charming Mixture of a Western and a Romantic Comedy James Stewart & Maureen O'Hara are a Great Couple and the Pictures of the Nature are absolutely beautiful

seitsemas ja viimeinen James Stewartin tahdittama lankkari minulle lyhyen ajan sisaan, kelpo western tamakin

Average western with Brian Keith giving a ridiculously over the top performance in what must be the worst red wig ever seen in a movie. Otherwise the stars turn in their usual professional jobs but there is nothing out of the ordinary here.

The Rare Breed is a great film. James Stewart and Maureen O'Hara gave amazing performances. The script is well written. Andrew V. McLaglen did a good job directing this movie. I liked this film because of the great characters. The Rare Breed is a must see.
