John Wayne is undeniably my favorite of all actors, and I'm happy that he was still around when I came into the world (He died when I was 5). Here's where the Duke does the stuff he's good at, dry humor, laying down the law, and pulling no punches. The whole "Your fault, my fault, nobody's fault..." exchange is Classic!! It's a great family reunion (John, Patrick, and Ethan). His oft costar Bruce Cabot does great in his supporting role. As well, the Duke and O'Hara show splendid chemistry in their final costarring. Not to mention the very intimidating performance by Richard Boone as the big villain. Gotta' love this one!!
