After Cahill is onto his sons' involvement in the bank robbery, we see him and Lightfoot watching the boys fishing. Later, after the boys have traveled awhile in the buckboard, we see the two men watching the boys again. The medium shot of Wayne and Brand reveals that they are sitting on their horses in the very place from which they had been watching the boys fishing. See more »
Give me my five dollars. If you get shot tonight, I'll disappear. Oh, I'll come back and bury you... and mumble something Christian over your grave.
Lightfoot, your kindness overwhelms me.

Thematically strong, but executed with little gusto.
"if you don't like the treatment, then don't rob banks"
J.D. Cahill is a fearsome marshal, his reputation goes before him where ever he roams, but when his two sibling boys decide to get his attention by way of joining a gang and then robbing a bank, he is perhaps faced with his toughest challenge.
This is not a great John Wayne film, in fact it's distinctly average, but at its heart, the tale of a single father trying to balance his work and bring up his children properly, is interestingly watchable, but after a brisk and entertaining opening the film ambles along without any wish to up the ante. John Wayne, and chief bad guy George Kennedy appear to merely be going thru the motions, and some of the technical work here only compounds the cheap feel that cloaks the story. Mostly unforgettable stuff, but it deserves a watch because it says a bit more than at first thought, it's just real sad that it's not put together very well, 5/10.
