John Wayne was concerned by the violence and insisted on adding plenty of comedy. However many critics felt the film was damaged by too much comedy. See more »
When Big Jake shoots the wounded bandit from the shower cabin, the guy growls in pain, drops his pistol and falls backwards, but there is not one visible wound or even a drop of blood on his body, likely because the squib or squibs did not blow on cue. See more »
John Wayne is undeniably my favorite of all actors, and I'm happy that he was still around when I came into the world (He died when I was 5). Here's where the Duke does the stuff he's good at, dry humor, laying down the law, and pulling no punches. The whole "Your fault, my fault, nobody's fault..." exchange is Classic!! It's a great family reunion (John, Patrick, and Ethan). His oft costar Bruce Cabot does great in his supporting role. As well, the Duke and O'Hara show splendid chemistry in their final costarring. Not to mention the very intimidating performance by Richard Boone as the big villain. Gotta' love this one!!
