James Stewart and John Wayne represent opposing but equally necessary forces in John Ford’s great late Western: Stewart is an unassuming lawyer who rises to political prominence as he civilizes the West, while Wayne is the man of violent action rendered obsolete by the passage of time. Vera Miles co-stars as the woman both men love, with additional support from Lee Marvin, Lee Van Cleef, Woody Strode and John Carradine.
Cattle baron John Wayne and foster son Montgomery Clift (in his first film) take 'em to Missouri but fall into conflict along the way in director Hawks' seminal Western classic, in which the director commands the epic as well as the intimate. With Joanne Dru, Walter Brennan, Coleen Gray, and music by the great Dimitri Tiomkin.
