One of John Wayne's last movies is also one of his worst, a desperate effort to grab the youth market
A minor John Wayne film that becomes a bore due to its preachy message.
As slow as watching hardening arteries, this is a kids movie made by yer great grandparents. Although there's talent here, and there is and plenty of it, it all seems past it. The most interesting part that remains then are the parts wherein the Duke tries to whitewash some of his own history: he tells a black man that he's no bigot. He tells his great grandson to treat a squaw with respect. It's as if the old guy is aware that time has marched on ... as soon he had to as well.
Absolutely of the Duke's western so John Wayne and George Kennedy (as the chief baddie) made wonderful performances.
Is it just me or are all 70's movies simplistic? John Wayne ignores his kids who get in trouble who get rescued by John Wayne who promises to pay more attention to his kids.
Made after the legend had taken over from the actor, this is typically a script that contained a John Wayne shaped hole in it , rather than a 3 dimensional character. But having said that, it's what he does best, and anyone looking for some 6 gun totin' machismo need look no further. There's also some able support from Neville Brady as a sardonic indian tracker.
