Despite the fact that the story is supposed to be taking place around 1914, the women wear mostly 1939 fashions and hairstyles throughout, except at the New Hope Valley 50th Anniversary Dance, where they are all in period costume. Meantime everyone uses buckboards and horse drawn buggies for transportation, and there is not an automobile in sight, even though they were in common use by this time. See more »
The final Three Mesquiteer film for John Wayne has the boys trying to help some settlers who are about to lose their land to some bad men. At the moment I can't recall how many of the Wayne films I've seen from this series but this is just like most of them. The film contains some pretty good action scenes and Wayne is good as usual but the stories aren't really that strong. Jennifer Jones has a small supporting role and does a pretty nice job.
As of now the only way to view these films is by AMC, which also includes commercials.
