  • 5 stars "Love this movie, I always watch it at home when it’s on, and will now get to see it on the big screen. They don’t make movies like this anymore."
  • 5 stars "It is the movie John Wayne finally won his long overdue Oscar with a grand performance. A perfectly directed movie by Henry Hathaway. Great acting by Wayne, Kim Darby, Glen Campbell, Strother Martin, and others in just a great, great western in the old style that will sadly never come again."
