Director: Henry Hathaway. Cast: John Wayne, Glen Campbell, Kim Darby, Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall. 128 min. Rated G. Western.
A typically beautiful, rich, delightful John Wayne western. Put some time aside for a weekend afternoon, relax, and savor the beauty of how movies used to be made (and aren't made anymore). Even the corny opening song is a delight. Almost the same story, but a completely different entity from the darker, grittier 2010 Coen Brothers' remake, to the extent that the roles of John Wayne and Jeff Bridges in the original and remake are incomparable. Watch for Dennis Hopper and Robert Duvall in memorable small roles.
