Worst film?
16 March 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Apparently, John Wayne himself mentioned that he felt this was the worst film he made in his career. That's saying a lot compared with the dozens of routine, generic B westerns he pumped out during the 30's and critically ravaged films like The Barbarian And The Geisha, and particularly the notorious The Conqueror (which I personally think is good!). No wonder Girls Demand Excitememt has never been released, and probably never will...then again, most of Wayne's lousy 30's westerns are commonly available on video and dvd.

Wayne completists like myself will not be satisfied until every one of his films is made commercially available! Fortunately, every year a few more of his long neglected films get released on dvd.
