Stars shine in Arizona
11 June 2019 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Arizona showcased John Wayne at 24 and only his second leading role is the most interesting actor despite being the most inexperienced. It all starts with the Duke kicking the winning extra point at the Army-Navy game much to the delight of the Colonel (Forrest Stanley). Then Laura La Plante plays the woman scorned to perfection with her sister June Clyde brilliantly complicating the drama. When the energized performance of Nina Quartero comes on the scene the plot thickens setting the stage masterfully for the grande finale. Arizona is one of the hidden gems that needs to see the light of day.
