John Wayne in one of his pivotal roles. Wonderful!
Not really, but both are special in their own right. The Duke is the Duke no matter where or when you encounter him. Well worth the listen and I have listened to it a number of times.
The scene during the birth of the baby is great. Ward Bond pulls off the Doctor's role only as he could do it. Wonderful job! At the end after the gun fight is John Wayne as we should always remember him!
This is a western classic performed by the best actors money could buy at the time. John Wayne had just won an award for all time favorite actor and he certainly deserved it in my opinion and showed why in his performance!
