This was the first of only three John Wayne films (the others being Cahill U.S. Marshal (1973) and McQ (1974)) to receive AA certificates by the UK censor, meaning that they could only be seen by persons 14 and over. All other Wayne movies were rated 'A' (PG) or under. See more »

A very entertaining John Wayne western. Richard Boone makes a great villian. It's action packed much more in the style of a Clint Eastwood Dirty Harry picture than a vintage John Wayne. Most highly recommended of Wayne's movies in the post-True Grit period.
