Great Cast in Moving Story
15 February 2007 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

The Wedding features Morgan Woodward in the main role as a wealthy, domineering father who won't let his daughter marry the man she loves. Morgan sees every man as primarily interested in "marrying the ranch," and thus he dislikes any man who likes his daughter.

A young Sam Elliot plays his son-in-law. Morgan gets him arrested for stealing a horse, and then starts another fight in order to have Elliot arrested again. Finally, Morgan has his ranch hands shoot him after chasing him down when he runs away. Morgan's daughter is heart-broken by her father's actions, and the result is a bitter-sweet ending for everyone involved.

Matt Dillon (James Arness) is deftly woven into this dramatic story, and he literally shows up in the nick of time after doing some detective work on his own. Overall, this is a very good story. The acting maintains the dramatic tension. Morgan Woodward was a very good actor. He plays the role of a man driven by his principles to do evil deeds very well. Morgan Woodward was a guest on Gunsmoke 19 times, and they were excellent episodes.
