John Wayne is at his most “John Wayne-ish” in this classic western from John Ford. Wayne plays a middle-aged Civil War veteran who spends years in western Texas chasing the Comanches who abducted his niece. He rides on his quest with his adoptive nephew.
This is a great movie to add to your Netflix queue.
The film’s scenery is stark, desolate, and beautiful. The sandstone buttes of Monument Valley puncture the horizon in every exterior shot.
