    A great cast in a very enjoyable Wayne western. One that has more below the surface than your typical western of the time. I especially enjoyed Lee Marvin, though his stint was too short. Interesting and fresh storyline as well.

    John Wayne is good as the cantankerous and rough Texas Ranger who goes undercover to smoke out a gang smuggling guns to the Comanches. Along the way he gets entangled with gambler and fugitive Paul Regret played by Stuart Whitman and the girl (Ina Balin) who fancies the gambler and who just so happens to be the daughter of the head of the Comancheros, a gang of renegades who provide the Comanches with booze and guns. It's a great ride from beginning to end and Lee Marvin does well in his small part and Whitman was okay as a fugitive on the run with a heart of gold and a good aim with the gun. However, two things I didn't like was this film depiction of all Comanches as drunken, bloodthirsty savages and the heroine's willingness to sell out her father and friends so easily is a little lacking in credibility, but I guess when they say love conquers all that included kith and kin.

    Michael Curtiz' last film is a solid and layered piece of actioner as a Texas Ranger tries to take out some knuckleheads suppling rifles to the Comanches. Yeah sure, it's a John Wayne film (and don't you forget it, pilgrim!) but there's room for everyone here. The word rollicking comes to mind.

    This action-western picture of John Wayne is absolutely which has not one dull moment. It has lots of nice moments between the Texas Ranger (played by Wayne) and gambler (Stuart Whitman) as the unlikely partners to take on the villians of Comancheros.
