A second rate Western, more interesting for its biographical elements, the film co-stars Wayne's own son as well as sons of Robert Mitchum and other friends, all getting the usual lessons in macho morality.
Wayne gets little help from anyone else but Boone and can't pull off such a slight story line by his lonesome.
Very enjoyable, underrated western.
Rowdy shootem' up has Duke in boot-stridin' form.
This is a little like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid with themes of the passing of the ways of the old west. It is set in the early 1900s. Automobiles and motorcycles are taking over as preferred modes of transportation. Wayne reunites with O'Hara briefly, too briefly. She only appears in the opening scenes. John Wayne's real son Patrick plays one rebellious son. Robert Michum's real son Christopher plays the other motocycle riding son. John Wayne is especially macho and stuck in his generation's way of relating to the younger generation who want to try new things. Of course since Wayne is the star and a producer, his character wins the day by stubbornly sticking to what he knows, putting the young men in their place as spoiled kids with tantrums and toys, and beating the outlaws.
Altho ostensibly about the Duke chasing greedy, unscrupulous kidnappers (with Richard Boone the leering leader of despicable baddies), this tale mainly involves an errant father's careful rebonding with his distrustful offspring ... and the Duke's folksy charm does just that, after a few butt-kicking fistfights and a coupla shootouts, naturally.
This might be my favorite movie by the Duke.
One of my best and favourite John Wayne's action-filled western films. This film was a family affair for John Wayne.
