J.D. Cahill is the toughest U.S. Marshal they've got, just the sound of his name makes bad guys stop in their tracks, so when his two young boy's want to get his attention they decide to rob a bank. They end up getting more than they bargained for. Written by

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 »
One thing I hate more than a Commanche is half of one.
His name is Lightfoot. And I wouldn't call him, 'Breed' to his face if I was you... not if you want to reach maturity.

(6/10) Not a great film, but is underrated simply for the fact that this is labeled by many as one of Wayne's weaker westerns in the latter stages of his career. Duke has a great supporting cast around him highlighted by Neville Brand as Indian tracker Ben Lightfoot, and villain George Kennedy. The Fink couple and writing team famous for penning Dirty Harry lacked originality for bringing up the same plot devices used in the Duke western Big Jake they wrote two years prior (Wayne choosing a gun slinging career over his children and Wayne teaming up with an Indian tracker). However I can forgive them since both areas were improved in this go around. Although some of their writing, such as Kennedy's sudden change of heart when Billy Jo was sick, was pretty weak.
