Duke a fake?
6 May 2010 | by GManfredSee all my reviews

"Conflict" is a formulaic '30's programmer with very little to recommend it. Let's see. You can see a young John Wayne getting experience and time in front of a camera. Jean Rogers is pretty. And there is some very nice background music by Charles Previn.

Well, that's about it. Not much else going on here. Direction was dreadful and the Screenplay was simple-minded, and it all makes you think of Kid's matinees of the 40's - I loved those shows but we also got some cartoons and funny shorts to go with it.

In this one, Duke is a lumberjack/set-up man for a crooked boxing con game working the Northwest with the"Champ" being none other than a youthful Ward Bond. But then Duke adopts an orphan boy, meets Jean Rogers, gets pangs of conscience, and guess what? You guessed correctly, so now you can buy or watch a better DVD, one more worthy of your time and expenditure.
