ITEM#: 11027204After his cowhands desert him for a nearby gold rush, aging, leather-tough rancher Will Anderson (John Wayne) resorts to hiring 11 schoolboys to help him on a 400-mile cattle run. Setting off with the boys and an eloquent but equally tough black cook (Roscoe Lee Browne), Anderson must get his cattle to their destination while contending with the wilderness and a psychotic, vengeful ex-con (Bruce Dern) who is out to get him. With an amazingly natural performance by Wayne, this stylized, action-packed Western is exquisitely filmed, emotionally sensitive, and highly entertaining. Director Mark Rydell gets solid performances out of not just Wayne (in one of his later screen roles) and Browne, but the group of youngsters accompanying them on the journey, as well as actors like Slim Pickens and Colleen Dewhurst who play smaller supporting roles. Close attention is also paid to the natural beauty of the mountains, wild mustangs, and other often overlooked standard Western fare.

I had been looking for this movie on CD for quite a long time, imagine the joy when it arrived. This was one of the movies needed to compete my husbands collection.Read More
John Wayne hit his stride on this one. Hard-nosed, sympathetic, stern is the character John Wayne portrays in this movie and does it very well. Bruce Dern hits his stride as well as a ne'er do well, liar (whom Wil Anderson hates), and all around bad guy. The cow "boys" and the rest of the cast are excellent, too. If you are thinking about getting this movie you will not regret it. Watch it with your children. And if you're not a John Wayne fan, you will be.Read More
This item was purchased as a gift for a John Wayne fan to replace a VHS tape. It arrived promptly and was exactly what I ordered. I did have to check to make sure it was a DVD because it was not mentioned on the site. I am very pleased with the purchase.Read More
